£ jss- of Spirits in 
^ /O j Found by Chief 
o*. Police in Dwelling on 
South Duluth Avenue; 


Upon information furnished the po- 
lice a few days ago, Chief Erickson 
and his force |late Saturday made a 
raid upon a dwelling at the coiner of 
the 400 blockon South Duluth avenue 
and found every*evidence that 1 " its 
former habitues -had been doing busi- 
ness on a fairly large scale and that 
their ramifications thrived best "by 
the light of the moon.'? 

Three sacks of corn mash were found 
in an upstairs room by the officers and 
several other articles of paraphernalia 
common to the moonshine industry 
'were discovered. - The articles ' and 
mash were taken to police -headquar- 
ters, where they are now a component 
part of the gallery. 

The owners 'of the contraband were 
not apprehended, and eluded the of- 
ficers and made a getaway; However 
.evidence is being collected and it is 
expected enough will materialize to 
cause arrests within the next

A great rl>ving band of hungry tim- 
ber wolves 1 has devoured three men, 
according to meager reports sifting in 
the first of) the week to Port Arthul 
from the -snow covered- trails of the 
Sturgeon river country. These reports 
told of a losing battle fought by two 
Indians afiefr a white trapper had 
been downeu 'and killed. ~ 

Last Saturday an elderly trapper 
left his cabin in the woods, 70 miles 
north of Ighace to mush down to the 
settlement |or his Christmas mail. He 
arrived in ^ifety. There was no mail; 
however ,ajid' the old man-: said he 
would corns back Christmas morning. 
At noon he had not arrived. .The 
postmaster sent two Indians to follow 
the trail until they found him. 

About two miles from the- settle- 
ment the Indians found a spot pound-

■ Announcement was made, this -week 
by C. S. Sapero,| local manager of the 
Sapero Company, ladies'" ready-to- 
wear outfitters, that commencing some 
time within the|next two months! the 
Thief River Falls store will in all de- 
tails and respects branch. out as a 1 ' de- 
partment store of the first order.} 

Contrary to the belief expressed' jm 
certain quarterslthat the Sapero Com- 
pany woul discontinue the Thief liiver 
Falls: store shortly after $ie first of 
the year, the; establishment jwill 
broaden its scope and expects in 
a better position than ever before to 
serve its patrons. n I 

The decision of the Sapero Company 
therefore comes j as a distinct surprise 
and indicates' stronger than anything 
else the faith of the concern in ! the 
local field. Thejstore was established 
here several years ago and has been 
known strictly as a ladies' and chil- 
dren's ready-to-wear shop, catering 
only to buyers of that kind of wearing 
apparel, and during its existence has 
built up an enviable reputation; as 
handling only the latest and best in 
these lines. j. 

The establishment of the depart- 
ment store will not -in any way impair 
the service the: Sapero Company, has 
formerly afforded its customers 
these lines bufcitwill rather augment 
complete lines and give better selec- 
tions. The store .will continue doing 
business at its former location in the 
"Citizens State' Bank building, where 
ite quarters are both neat and tout 
mndioos, and it is believed that j suf- 
ficient room can be found to handle 
all new goods that are expected to ar- 
rive within the [very near future.

Tribune! Awar^^ 
County Printing 

.*j§R- X. McGinn of this city was se- 
lected as chairman of the .board of 
county commissioners, and J. S. Roy 
ofvSt. Hilaire was made vice chair- 
man when the new board organized at 
the courthouse yesterday afternoon. 

Oscar Peterson, who retires as the 
chairman after serving for eight 
years in that capacity, was in the city 
yesterday for^flie final meeting of the 
old -board.' To The Tribune the retir- 
ing chairman stated he was glad to 
quit. If the new members can inW 
prove upon thojwork of the old board," 
they are entitlen to all the credit, said 
Mr. Peterson. Similar sentiment was 
expressed by Mr.-Naplin, who retires 
in ;favor of EmiTPeterson. 

Meanwhile the new board-was strug- 
gling with thevjury list in the audi- 
tor's office. The -Tribune, being a re- 
spfe'ctablefamily journal, corild hardly 
quite the language of one or two of 
the board members as they strove to 
live up to the present laws governing 
the selection of jurors,' but we did hear 
one member say that certain members 
of 'the legislature should have their 
heads examined. '. , 

*The board was busy approving the 
bo^ids of new officials, and transacted 
much routine business, an account of 
which will appear in the published pro- 
ceedings next week. 

This noon the j board took an ad- 
journment until January 24, when all 
unfinished business will be taken up. 

(3arl G. Olson of Rhoda succeeds Mr. 
Peterson on the board, while Emil Lar- 
son of Wylie succeeds Mr. Naplin. 
They proceeded with the county busi- 
ness like veterans at the game.

Judge William Watts at Crookston 
last Wednesday and admitted his guilt. 
The judge gave -him a jail sentence- of 
90 days and a $300 fine. 

Linstad began serving his sentence 
at Warren yesterday. Linstad, who 
operated a still in Sanders township, 
is an old offender] this being his sec- 
ond jail sentence. 

Linstad was arrested October 3- by 
Sheriff W. Ji LaBree, a vast quantity 
of moonshinej in various stages of per- 
fection being found on his place in 
Sanders township.] He is one. of the 
men generally credited with' responsi- 
bility for the' generous supply of illicit 
liquor whichlhas found its way to the- 
bars of Thief RtveV Falls. His arrest, 
'however, failed' to abate the nuisance 
locally, as recent events go to show 
that moonshine in large quantities is 
still being peddled within' the confines 
of this dty.j •, >■ - V -, .

Friday Evening. 

Addresses by Senator Han-

The Evelyn hotel was the scene of 

The Thief River Falls high school 
basket ball team "put the bee" on the 
college all-stars in stinging fashion in 
a game played at the City Auditorium 
last Tuesday evening, when the form- 
er chased the all-stars around the ball 
room to the painful but close score of 
37 to 34.- 

The jump-off came at precisely 8 
o'clock, but after jumping for a few 
rounds, condition and .fitness com- 
menced telling against stateness and 
reputation, and the high school ath- 
letes set up a pace to the all-stars 
that, they couldn't even dog trot after. 
The two Sorcnsons made the roads so 
dirty and dusty that mud-lugs might 
have helped the all-stars. The Iatte); 
quint commenced piling up, a score 
that looked bad for the high school 
boys, but it was easy to see from the. 
sidelines that drastic things were soon 
to fall on the challengers and the 
high, school hooked basket after bas- 
ket in rapid succession, The- all-stars 
were sorely afflicted in the second 
quarter and Coach Holzknecht . vois 
compelled to make a flashy and peri- 
lous change in his lineup as soon tis 
the high school got agoin'. 

Soon after the start of the second 
quarter t*he score stood 12 to 11, but 
no one conversant with basket ball 
expected it to remain there for long. 

■' If any human being has a' solution 
for ,the power situation which con- ■ 
fronts the' city of Thief River Falls at 
the present tihie, such person failed 
to show up at the public mass meeting 
held at the Commercial clubrboms last 
evening. There was- much talk pro . 
and con, but nothing tangible resulted 
except a resolution which in effect . 
passes the buck: back to the council. 
That is, the council can go ahead and 

do as it d -. pleases 1 so far as the 

public is concerned.' 

The resolution passed last night was 
to the effect that it be the sense of 
the meeting that the council proceed 
as it deems best for the city in the 
light and powersituation. Which may 
mean most anything. Harry Brunvmd, 
president of the council, presented 
facts and figures showing a fairly sat- 
isfactory condition so far as the pres- " 
ent plant is concerned, but also show- 
ing the urgent; need for improved 
power facilities; 

The burning ; question of the hour 
revolves about the' dam versus engine, 
power, and from reports presented it 
would seem advisable at this- time for 
the city to provide against disaster by 
augmenting the' engine equipment now 
in force. , u 

Engineers may Be hiralby the city 
council to make a survey of the' whole 
situation in order that the council and 
public may proceed intelligently with 
the situation presented. 


The New Year's- ball given at the 
city auditorium last Friday, evening 
was well attended, many from out-of- 
town and students' at outside schools, 
being present. Snyder's five-piece or- 
chestra furnished music.

players were carrying the battle into 

Take Basket Ball Game From 
School by 'Close Score of 
21 to 19. 


The all-stars complete^' turned the 
tables on the high school basket ball 
team at the Auditorium last night 
when the former won by the .-lo>i' 
margin of 21 to 19. The game was 
close throughout and neither ride i 
'showed material advantage over the 
other. The all-stars had comjUetelv 
reorganized since their forniei* defeat 
and this had teUing effect upon the 
offensive tactics of the high school ath- ■ 
letes. who did not show the same cla?s 
as demonstrated a week ago. (

The Tribune wasnt present during 
the latter stages of the fray but we 
hoard of the massacre later, and we 
never thought the high school boys 
had the heart to treat their elder 
brethren in such fashion. Their cold- 
bloodedness was. undoubtedly "due to ! 
certain boisterous uterances of the all-: j 
stars a few days' prior when it is said 
they asserted that all they required to 
"trim the kids" was a forward and a 
guard. If the assertions ■ are true, 
which it is_hoped is riot 'the case, the 
all-stars are undoubtedly entitled to 
the terrible drubbing they received. 
Succeeding events at the game demon- 
strated that instead of a forward and 
a guard the all-stars should have 
brought along sawed-off shotguns and 
■mustard gas. 

The following performed for the 
high school: C. Sorerison, .right for- 
ward; Sether. left forward; LaBree, 
center; S. Sorenson, right guard; Her- 
Ton, left guard. Schutt substituted for 
Sether and Herb Keene and Halvorson

It 1 as been found ijecessary to add 
severs 1 episodes to the original stage 
play, but the' psychology remains the 
same; and 1 the glory, of the whole dra-' 
made piece is that it presents one of 
the iro'st moving and magnificent fig- 
ures n modem drama. John Paul 
Bart s not a superman, is not illogi- 
cal, ,i: all too human; but he has that 
plus |uality within him that carries 
beyor i •where the average man would 
stop. His is the spirit of Youth, un- 
s\ver\ ing and unshaken, sweeping all 
befor ! it because of its swiftness of 
execu :ion. John Paul Bart has '-hat' 
implafcable faith in theory; his sheer 
enthu-iasm allows no room for doubt 
— the eternal disintegrator. 

It s only the tonic quality of "A 
Tailo: Made. Man" that makes it an 
ideal- vehicle for Charles Ray, himself 
the incarnation^ of the; dreamer with 
the c< urage of. his convictions, but the 
color. For the story, beginning in a

"A TaBor Made Man," New 
Charles Ray Film, Coming 

• ' i 

Noted Star's First Super-feature For 

United .Artists Booked by the 

Lyceum Theatre. 

Charles Ray will appear on the 
screen at the Lyceum Theatre Sunday 
and Monday in "A Tailor Made Man," 
his first United Artists production. 
This is one of the most important pro- 
ductions of the' 1922 season, and) will 
display Ray's humanness and versa- 
tile talents in an entirely new direc- 
tion. ■ 

It was only after considerable de- 
liberation that "A Tailor Made Man" 
was selected as Ray's initial vehicle 
for United Artists, release; the choice 
was made over countless other stories 
submitted because "A Tailor Made 
Man" has been one of the most pop- 
ular plays of the last three stage, sea- 

Albert Ray, author of several orig- 
inal photoplays in which Charles Ray 
starred, adapted "A Tailor Made Man" 
to the screen, and Joseph DeGrasse, 
who directed Ray in "The Old Swim- 
min' ■ Hole" and "Forty-five Minutes 
From Broadway," directed the pro- 

The story is the - eternal story of 
Youth clinging tenaciously to an idea' 
and enthusiastically seeing it through; 
the underlying motif is the belief in 
the effectuality of good clothes. Re- 
plete with >wit and gayety, "A Tailor 
Made Man" carries an undercurrent 
•of serious philosophy. It is said that 
this photoplay is a marvel of dramatic 
construction, moving forward sweep- 
ingly and relentlessly to a surprising 
:but satisfying finale. , . 

1 Supporting Charles Ray in this, his 
first venture, into the field of the 
super-production, are: Ethel Grandin, 
in the leading fenminine role, Thomas 
Ricketts, Douglas Gerrard, Victor 
Potel, Douglas Gerrard, Edyth Chap- 
man, Kate Lester, Jacqueline Logan. 
. Stanton Heck, Eddie Gribbon, Michael 
- Dark, Frank Butler, Gharlotte Pierce, 
and others. 

Seldom in screen history has a ve- 
hicle, been selected wifh'so definite a 
goal in view. as was tliet case in choos- 
ing "A .Tailor Made Man" as Charles 
Rny's initial photoplay production for 
United Artists. It .was an ideal 
choice, as it offers the star an oppor-

doma ns of commerce, the residences 
of th< socially elect, and the high seas, 
with i denouement in the little i:ailor 
shop. Ray is seen in the humble, garb 
of thl clothes-presser and in the togs 
of th i ultra-fashionable; and his role 
is en< owed with wit, charm and sym- 
pathy . The powerful dramatic situa- 
tions, the underlying philisophy and 
the sttain of ebullient humor through- 
out, make for a screen story that must 
naturally, bring out the best there is 
in' Charles Ray.

To the Editor of j The Tribune, 

Thief River Falls, Minn. 

As the Thief River Palls Times 
comes out with } a regular stand-pat 
completion of the Red Lake drainage 
project — arid th'ej Times is requesting 
towards which it! has not contributed 

single penny if or construction nor 
for maintenance.! 

And as to the sentiment, we beg to 
state to the Times: We maintain the. 
same opposition j to the Red Lake 
drainage project as we did at the time 
of hearing, so kindly do not make any 
.•mis-statement. But we are inclined 
to believe the editor of the Times is 
tiot using his own think-tank in his 
arguments. j 

! I'm still believing that other ways 
than the present! plan 'can be worked 
put. A good construction lay of the 
type that lends for public good should 
be encouraged and I am sure that'im-. 
provements can | be suggested and 
worked out to the pt blic good. Lei 
-congress solve some 'ray to improve 
the present law,! as the way it ilow 
stands you are dammii g out the farm- 
ers with taxation ana causing the 
Johnstown flood, \ and such calamity 
will be brought i aboit by damming 
put the .majority of |the people *vho 
have-to :foot the whole bill," as .we 
plainly saw at the .Hearing at Thief 
River Falls. If isucli conditions pre- 
vail, when the rules of nature are sub- 
stituted, how much more dangerdiis it 
is when you change 'natural 'laws of- 
business, mixing the same with human 
selfishness. Is it' not {patent to every 
thinking citizen that |lvhoever Jias the 
tinkering of a drainage to be imposed 
on the land owner, whose land will 
be assessed and taxed beyond, any 
sound reason, that these same advo- 
cates will sec* to jit that theiiv partic- 
ular interests are' protected and some- 
one else has to pay for it. ; 
_i. I must state that if said Red Lake

the benefit assessment now stands, it 
will result in pauperizing the farmers

the others. If they can get something.; along the riv;f in that part of the

farmers in this district. We. admit 
that the dredging of; the .river h; 
been danglinj in the air, but bear in 
mind that it 1 as been of just as much 
importance ai d discussion "in connec- 
tion with the project; that we must 
have an additional system of ditches, 
for the dredg ng of the river can not 
by any persoi with a sane 'mind be 
considered a iystem of drainage, but 
as a draining :ystem it wiH not fail.

know what will be the: next move, for 
the farmers v. ill not nor can not stand

In regard to Mr. Hafdal, we 
like very much to know who gave him 
the promise of adjustment in assess- 
ments, and who has at this time auth- 
ority to give such promise, as most '.of 
lis here in Highlanding are in need of 
adjustment in our assessments. |

as being opposed to this project qn 
general principles, for .the reason that 
it'is a known fact that this flood con- 
trol project is 6f indirect benefit to.

River basin and tributary thereto, but 
only a small portion, in the extreme 
east end, least able to pay, are left to

Editor Tribune: 

j' In the recent issues of the local

length concerning the Red Lake pro- 
ject. In the "Times for Dec. : 14 we 
jiote an article with headlines in large, 
type, "The Sentiment Has Taken a 
-Change." ^We are skeptical in regard 

. to these headlines and their origin. In 
the same issue : appears a statement 
signed by a farmer, over in the town- 
ship of Hickory, who seems to have 
the idea that the river improvernent 
-will prove the means of remedying 
• the difficulty. No doubt it will -ma- 
terially' provide means of seeing your 
way out of itrall. And furthermore,

Editor of The Tribune: 

I have read the communication of 
Mr. Wm. J. Brown in yojur issue of 
Dec. 28. If the sarcasm and uncalled 
for personal criticism of- the misstate- 
ments from my report and testimony- 
were eliminated there, would be little 
left of the communication. ' 

Judging from Mr. Brown's closing 
paragraph- he is endeavoring to -balk 

Lake River is three times as great as 
the developed fall. The undeveloped 
fall can only be developed under li- 
cense from the Fedearl Water Power 
Commission, which requires in Section 
.10- • . .. . .. . .' 

"That whenever any licensee here- 
under is. directly benefited by the con- 
struction, work of another licensee, a 
permittee, or of the United Stages of 
a storage reservoir or other headwater 
improvement/the commission, shall re- 
quire as a condition'of the license that 
the licensee so benefited shall reim- 
burse the owner of such reservoir or 
other improvements for,such part of 
the anrjual charges for interest, main- 
tenance, and depreciation thereon, as 
the commission may deem equitable. 
The proportion of such charges to be 
paid by any licensee shall be deter- 
mined by the commission." 

My testimony before the court 
shows that I estimated the benefit to 
"existing and undeveloped water power 
as' somewhere between $2,000 and 
?60,000 a year, making a total esti-

to my testimony, ranging from S200,- 
000 to $600,000 when annual benefits 
are capitalized at 10 per cent. This' 
is to be compared with the govern- 
ment estimate of ?240,000. 

There is nothing contradictory on 
the subject of assessments against un - 
developed water powers in my report, 
in my testimony at the recent hearing, 
or in the statements I have made 
since that hearing. Mr. Brown has 
offered no quotations to prove his con- 

If Mr. Brown is so certain that my 
interpretation of state law regarding 
lump-sum assessments against water 
powers is wrong I wish he would point 
out how the district can make a 'ump- 
'sum assessment and still act in con- 
formity with Sec. 23, Chapter 13, Ex. 
Ses. 1919, which states that the Dis- 
trict Board, "shall not part with the 
permanent control of the iise of the 
district -water." 

Regarding the government plan for 
financing this project.-I quote further 
from Document No. 61: "The work of 
improvement can best be financed * * 
by the formation of a Drainage Dis- 
trict * * to comprise nil lands *' * 
which are susceptible of benefit by ex- 
isting or proposed drainage ditches 

As further evidence' that the gov- 
ernment engineers expected the water 
powers and municipalities to pay their 
apportionment in annual rentals. I 
quote from Page 28, of the same doc- 

"Municipal water supply would re- 
ceive benefit at Crookston and Grand 
Forks. As a tentative measure of 
benefit, take the 26.000 inhabitants as 
forming 6,500 families, and assess 
their benefits at '10 cents per family

Cass Lake Fox Farm 

Closes Splendid Year 

What Causes Gas 

On^fthe Stomach? 

It is caused by fermenting, sour 
waste matter in the intestines. This 
old, foul matter should be thoroughly 
cleaned out with simple buckthorn 
bark, glycerine, etc., as mixed in Ad- 
ler-i-ka. This acts on BOTH upper 
and lower bowel, removing old 'accum- 
ulated matter you never thought was 
in your system. Adler-i-ka relieves 
ANY case gas on the stomach. EX- 
CELLENT for sour stomach - and 
chronic constipation. Guards afainsc 
appendicitis. F. J. Stebbins, druggist. 

The fox farm near Cass Lake has 
been closed to visitors for the wintef 
after one of the most successful sea- 
sons- in its history. 

Last week ten animals, considered 
perfect, were petted, while, over $10,- 
000 worth of pelts were sold during 
the season besides a great many foxes 
for breeding purposes. 

The farm is closed- at this season 
of ^ the year to visitors, because the 
animals become fierce and ugly for a 
few months in the winter time.'

It was certainly a nightmarish pic- 
ture af amateur brewing and distilling 
that Major Hayne's; federal prohibi- 
tion commissioner, drew recently in a 
message to the American Public 
Health Association. 

He had found iodine, a deadly poi- 
son, used to color "bootleg" liquor and 
.give it a "kick." He has found many 
stills operating rn gnvtage, with ITilf 
rotten banana skins, watermelon rinds, 
potato peelings, etc., appearing in the 

And the home distilling is not much 
better than that done for profit. Ig- 
norance of proper practice land inabil- 
ity on the part of amateur's to feep 
their stills at a proper temperature 
result in the production of ether, fusel 
~ oil and other highly poisonous liquids 
instead of alcohol. ; \l 

Often there is produced an aldehyde 
which "pickles" the drunkard's diges- 
tive .'apparatus. ■ . 

Some doctors say that the drinking, 
of that stuff now being made and dis- 
tributed is producing an alaftning crop 
of diabetes. 
. The surroundings of the illicit still 
are nauseating, too. Some stills .lave 
been hidden under hog pens. Nearly 
all the bootleg stills are filthy as well 
; as unscientific. Some of them use load 
pipes instead of copper, thus adding 
another poison to their devil's brew. 

Brewing audi distilling, whether al- 
coholic or otherwise, are complicated 
arts, requiring experience, skill .and 
-honesty. The only safe way to do is 
to accept no amateur or illicit brew 
or distillation of any kind.. — Wadena 
Pioneer Journal. 


This is how one Minnesota editor 
views the legalized fight game, the ap- 
pended article being taken from the 
Fairmont Sentinel: 

"The beetlebrows of the prize ring 
revelled in a saturnalia of brutality 
the "other night. The affair was 
pulled off in the St. Paul auditorium 
in the presence of 7,000 fight fans 
"ho yelled their heads off as the 
thurs pummelled each other till 
they were more de,id than alive. 
Some nf the Tefinod incidents, of the 
sensational encounters are^graohic- 
ally described in a Page or so telling 
the blood-spilling details. Let u£ 
quote a few choice ones: "Giving 
away. 13% pounds, Gibbons gave 
MisVe a boxing lesson. Twice Billv 
wobbled and, looked as if he would 
go down, but Tommy could nnt put 
the finishing blow across. Nearly 
7.000 fans yelled wildly for a knock- 
out. Miske landed one blow that, 
rrohably 'enabled him to go the 
route. It- was a glancing left" in the 
fifth round that closed Tommy's left 
eye in the sixth. With only.. one 
good eye, Tommy slowed up in the 
seventh and the round was eron. 
Through the eighth, ninth and tenth 
Gibbons tore *into him with the 
, speed of a bantam, showering his 
townsman with lefts and rights. 
Miske's face at the finish was a mass 
of blood, swollen and battered from 
the terrific hammering he took." 
The Sioux Indian inhabited this 
country a little over a. half century 
ago. Do you suppose they staged any- 
thing more brutalizing than the mo- 
dern prize ring "scenes, protected by

pretensions of respectability? We

Indications are that 1923 will be a 
promising year for Thief River Falls 
motion 1 picture theatre goers, judging 
from the numerous attractive book- 
ings already made by Manager Bru- 
muhd of the Lyceum theatre. In line 
with the policy of- the theatre to al- 
ways present in Thief River Falls the 
cleanest and best productions of the 
silver screen, the management this 
week announces a number, of nation- 
ally known productions that will be 
shown here within the next two 
months. Some of them are master 
productions, which are still being 
shown in the larger centers, pictures 
seldom released in the smaller nties 
for a year or two after their initial 
presentation. , 

' The Lyceum management, 'however, 
has kept abreast of the times in this 
.connection and its aggressiveness in 
securing some-of these releases to be 
shown here speaks well for the Ly- 
ceum theatre and Thief River Falls. 

While all of the pictures are not 
late releases, they are for tKe most 
part pictures of pr«ven merit. Some 
of them are made by America's best- 
known producers. "Way Down East," 
for example, while not a rebent pro- 
duction, it is safe to say that few 
cities the size of Thief River Falls 
will witness one of Griffith's master 
productions within the next few 
weeks. Others to be shown here are 
"The Three Musketeers," "Manslaugh- 
ter," "Nice People," "The Old Home- 
stead," "Blood and Sand," "Valley of 
Silent Men," and many others still in 
the making.

tribution, \rather 

duction is the- great need in agricul- 
ture today, said jl. F. Reed, president 
of the -Minnesota Farm Bureau Fed- 
eration in his annual address before 
the fourth annual convention of that 
organization, held this week at St. 

Co-operation, he held, offers the best 
solution for the problem, and said 
"producers' organizations are. going 
forward, in spite of all obstacles. He 
urged government ageilcies "suppos- 
edly instituted to be of service to the 
farmers" to give nore' consideration) to 
the marketing p roblem. ■'■ ■■ \ 

"We have," he said, "rather than 
over-production, ! i lack of proper fa- 
cilities to marke; and distribute our 
products. Millions of people improp- 
erly nourished ai d clothed prove this 
statement. | 

'There is no disposition on the pari 
of farmers to belittle the efforts !ol 
those who have taken over the distri- 
bution and marketing of farm pro- 
ducts, but we 'do feel that those who 
have engaged in such work have ob- 
tained greater remuneration than the 
men who produce the product. Such 
being the case, itj is clear to trie that 
our marketing system has failed to 
carry its share of theburden. Con- 
tinued production jon the present quan- 
tity basis is a liablu'ty to agriculture." 
Farmers, Mr. Reed said, must learn 
to yield^ degree of their independence 
of action and mor|e truly adjust them- 
selves to their neighbors' ijeeds, if co- 
operative marketing is to accomplish 
the' greatest possible results. j 

Gray Silver, Washington represent- 
ative of the American Farm -Bureau, 
told the convention that Farm Bureau 
activities at the national capitol had 
saved farmers more than 80 times tjv; 
money paid in dues to the-national 
organization. "Farmers are holding 
their congressional representatives to 
strictest accountability," he said. 
. J. W. Coverdale, secretary of the 
national organization, discussing the 
Farni Bureau's job asid the first prob- 
lem is to keep tiie movement from 
following unsount) policies that have 
led to the destruction of many prom- 
ising farmer organizations. j 

Women's interest in the program 
centered around art address by Mrs. 
Charles Schuttler jof Farmingtori, Mo., 
who) talked on the importance of the 
farm home in the movement. j

'Little Lord Fauntleroy" Retains 

the Beau if ul Things in 
■ ! the Story. 


The millions of readers of Frai ces 
Hodgson Burnett's world : loved novel, 
"Little Lord Fapitleroy," will be [de- 
lighted to Tmow £hat Mary Pickford in 

reproducing the 

story for the screen 

has preserved all its quaintness and 
charm, and has been especially faith- 
ful to the costumes and manners of 
the period depicted so vividly by jthe 
aiithori' ! 

As a vehicle for the lovely Mary, 
this story is ideal, running_as it Joes 
the entire gamut of emotional drama, 
pathos and riotous comedy. It gives 
her the greatest!- opportunity she ever 
has had for the idteplay of that bril- 
liant genius which has- so. endeared jhcr 
to' the hearts ojf l&r. World and [his 
Wife. In the play, scheduled to ap- 
pear at the Lyceum Theatre Friday 
and Saturday, she has a chance to[ let 
her public see her as a mature woman 
and also as a boy of seven. In [the 
world of dramatic art what .could be 
more difficult? [Not only in the same 
play but in the same scenes, will this 
greatest of all screen artists 4>e seen 
in. these two different roles. j 

Through the medium of double [ex- 
posure, that most baffling of photo-, 
graphic methods^ Miss Pickford is able 
to! appear as two different characters 
in- the same scene, thus producing the 
most perfect illusion possible. I 

The Victorian dresses with their 
puff-sleeves;. "EuiHes and long trains; 
the thatched houses and the magni- 
ficent castle shown in this film tend to 
make it an achievement in- picture- 
land. - ■ . I I 

[And yet-wlip| can ever forget jthe 
rhenmatic old apple-woman, the portly 
grocer and the jiovable bootblack who 
who were such! great cronies of Cetlric 
Errol ? The human interest and heart 
appeal in this picture is said to itop 
anything ever lyet translated into cel- 

Miss Pickford will be seen in a 
grjeater variety 'and more novel set of 
costumes in "Little Lord Fauntleroy" 
than in any play in. which she [has 
ever before appeared. The display of 
women's fashion typical of. the Eight- 
ies will undoubtedly prove very inter- 
esting to style I devotees, .. especially 
When contrasted with the scanty lat- 
tice of today. I 

■ But most appealing of all will be 
Mary Pickford tjie little boy and 1/inry 
PicRford the grown-up woman. The 
presentation of this feature will 
more elaborate than anything 
shown at the Lyceum Theatre.

Over two hundred years ago an en- 
voy of the British King, in a speech, 
to the Duke of Brandenhurgh, ased 
these words: "A capacity to, do good 
not only gives a title to it, but also 
makes the doing of it a duty." That 
is a : right nobel sentiment, well worth, 
reflecting upon in days when duties 
seem so rather irksome. 

: A New York chauffeur has sued his 
father-in-law for taking his wife 
away from him. And many men are 
trying to devise ways .and means of 
getting rid of their wives. There's 
something wrong' in this matter of 
getting the right folks together.

Andy Brown, who was , 
accomplice for the murder of Marie 
Wick of Grygla, the brutal s crime for 
which William Gummer was convicted 
and sentenced to life imprisonment at 
Bismarck, N.: D., pleadedl guilty last 
Saturday to a charge of bootlegging 
and was sentenced to 90 days in pail 
and fined §200 by Judge A. T v Cole 
of Fargo. < 

According : to Fargo newspapers, 
Brown 'has been closely watched by 
police of that city and has been sus- 
pected of transporting and, selling, 
liquor over a period of several months 
although up to last week (ie has beeif 
successful in eluding capture for his 
crime. Last week, however, he was 
caught with the goods jan^l his arrest 
and sentence 'speedily followed; 

Brown figured prominently in the 
• trial of William Gummer for the mur- 
der of the Grygla woman, perpetrated 
at a Fargo hotel -when she "spent the 
night there with the intention of 
catching a train the next morning for 
points in North Dakota. Brown was 
completely cleared at the trial and had 
intermittently been making Fargo his

The new policy of the Oen store is 
made' after a thorough investigation 
of the pibblem of credit extensions to 
patrons and the management came to 
fts decision of going on a cash basis 
after it Was discovered that collection 
of store (accounts has been made in- 
creasingly difficult during the past 
two years. . ' 

Lower prices and better service will 
be the outcome of doing business on 
a cash basis, states the management 
of the store, because of the many 
economies that can be worked out in 
the saving of labor a*d the necessity 
of keeping several hundred book ac- 
counts.- I 

All farm produce brought In is ( to

W. W. Prichard, Sr., one of the best- 
known, authorities in northern Minne- 
sota' on farm legislation and banking, 
last week appeared before the House 
committee having in charge the rural 
credits -bill, the second measure intro- 
duced at this session of the Legisla- 
ture. A number of business men of 
the state testified 'before the commit- 
tee and gave their views on various 
amendments to the proposed measure. 
The Minneapolis Tribune had the fol- 
lowing to say ■ regarding the confer- 
ence held at the state. capitol: 

"Provisions of the rural credits bill 
requiring actual and . bona-fide resi- 
dence'and use of farm lands by any- 
one attempting to negotiate .a loan 
from the. state, was the chief objec- 
tion to the proposed -bill in its present 
form, as disclosed at an . informal 
hearing conducted by the special 
House committee on agriculture at the 
capitol. . • 

"The bill, in its present form, with 
this proviso included, it was pointed 
out, is calculated to defeat its best 
purposes and to handicap the individ- 
ual it was intended to benefit. W. W. 
Prichard, -Thief River Falls, raised 
this point. * . 

"Mr. Prichard, Israel Sjoberg, Ro- 
seau, and Sam Hammerbeck, Little 
Falls, participated in the hearing. 

"Mr. Prichard favored, a less re- 
stricted entree in the state loans. He 
was reminded by Representative Theo-

The North Dakota legisalture en- 
tered the second week of the 1923 
session with harmony still existing be, 
tween the independents and the non- 
partisans; and with leaders, on both 
sides asserting that in the main this 
harmony will continue thro»ghout the 
session. The differences in prospects, 
as gathered from conversations with 
members, does not indicate anything 
like the uproarious- sessions of the 
last few years in North Dakota when 
the nonpartisans were in power in 
both or one house> • 

The real work of the session began 
Monday. A committee is at work on 
the recommendation submitted by Gov. 
R. A. Nestos to the, legislature, with a 
view of -presenting what will be called 
the "independent program." The non- 
partisans thus far are without a pro- 
gram, being in the minority. The in- 
dependent program will embrace' th£ 
important recommendations of the 
governor culling for the appointment 
of non-political boards to take over 
the management of the state indus- 
tries, particularly the state mill and 
elevator at Grand Forfis. 

Speaker Johnson had completed his 
list of committees, giving liberal rep- 
resentation to the nonpartisans, as 
-was done by Lieutenant Governor F. 
H. Hyland in appointing the ~ senate 
standing committees. 

Governor. Nestos had announced 
that with respect to consideration of 
the affairs of the state industries, that 
all of the avenues of .information of 
the state would gladly be opened to 
the committee of the legislature. Of- 
ficials of the Bank of North Dakota 
have started preparing their report 
for the year of 1922, with a view of 
having the report available for the 
legislators within two weels. j 9 

N. J. Anderson, former register of 
deeds, has opened up an abstracting 
office in room 210"of the Scandia block 
and hereafter will conduct alVbusiness 
connected with the proper preparation 
of all title and record documents, in 
which business he has 'had many years 
of experience. t j Ionian announced w <■■ 

Mr. Anderson has a fully equipped rje 
office ill his new location and believes 
there is a live field in Thief River 
Falls for an office of the kind he has 
recently established. His reliability in 
this cennection during the time he was j lias ID

The Tribune believes the time has 
come for the people of Thief River 

. Falls to assert themselves in the mat 
ter of a new Great Northern depot. 
The unsightljj makeshift which is per- 
mitted to disfigure Main avenue was 
good enough twenty years ago. Like 
the homesteader's shack on the fron- 
tier, however,! the structure has served 
its-purpose.and outlived its usefulness 
and should now give way to something 
more in keeping with the commercfifl 
importance of the city and community. 
We believe the business of ' the 
•Great Northern is of • sufficient im- 
portance in the local field to call for 
better'-treatmeht in return than has 
been evidenced by the officials of that 
road in the past. Thief River rfalls 
owes it to those travelers who come 
into the city pia the Great Northern, 
or who depart by that route, to bring 
to the attention of the Great Northern 
officials the injustice which is daily 
being done by maintaining a sta :ion 
here which \yoaId disgrace a de

thaf local sentiment will sustain 
city officials or any other co'nstiti 
authority in taking' such steps as will 
seem best suited to bring the officials 
of the Great Northern to their sens es.

the postoffice in this city. Not only 
are the quarters entirely too small,

week thr e Red Lake Falls mfen were

at Fergus Falls, after their guilt had 
been full r established. Is there any 
sense to i perforpiance of that kind? 
Moonsl ining is a profitable business' 
or there would not be so many men 
engaged n it, and the imposition of a 
light fine for siph offenses hearkens 
back to t ie old Trays when- authorities 
connived with the keepers of disorder-

under a system of weekly or monthly 
fines. Tl e judges have it in their

The most recent bluff of the t

threat that the proposed drainage pro-

forever lost. jWell. who's worrying?

It begins toj look to a; man up a t -ee

interested in foisting something uton 
the farmers which they do not want, 
will have to^take it. out in worrying. 
The farmers simply do not want il: — 
say they cannbt pay for it — and if the 
.project is now dismissed, as it, assur- 
edly ought toj be, then] it will be the 
farmers' own lookout if the great Cc n 
servancy Boaid and its newspaper: 
carl prevent its being reinstated whjen 
such action is! undertaken.

Thief River Falls should no longer 
be asked to transact its postoffice busi 
ness, in a building of cramped propor- 
tions. The town has outgrown j such 
frontier accommodations, and there 
can be no legitimate excuse for! fur- 
ther delay in providing decent work- 
ing quarters. t ' I 

ing can be gained by continually ar- 
raying the farmer against organized 
labor. The Tribune contends that the 
farmer would be much better off were 
he as well organized as labor and he 
will. soon find he must be so organized 
in order to exist.

The Crookston Times has a i new 
plan for government price fixing of 
the five great farm staples, namely, 
wheat, com, cotton, wool and sugar. 
It. proposes that the government 
through some agency to be established, 
for that purpose shall hold itself ready 
to purchase the surplus crops at a 
given price, say S1.35 for wheat, 65 
cents for corn, and so on. i 

The Times makes the point that 
such a guarantee on the part ofj the 
government will virtually ' set | the 
price for the entire crop, which is [log- 
ical, for the producer will naturally 
hold his crop for the higher price. 
'There are many things to be consid- 
ered jn connection with the plan.! but 
on t$e face of it the scheme looks 
feasible and may offer a solution to 
the objectors who oppose the purchase 
of the entire wheat crop by the gov- 
ernment. ( 

Of course, the ideal way to stabilize 
the price of grain is through intensive 
organization on the' part of the pro- 
ducers, by control of the markets and 

tried in vain time "and again it .seems 
no more than right that the govern- 
ment exert itself in placing, '^arm 
prices where they belong. We have 
subsidized almost everything effiei so 
why not spend a few American dollaVs 
where they will do the most good? 
. Conditions will right themselves all 
along the liner when the purchasing* 
power of the farmer has been rein- 
stated. The wheels of industry jwill 
move, unemployment will end, and, we 
will again be hitting on all six; The 
plan of The Times is worthy of serious 
consideration, . and ) we cheerfully .j in 
vite discussions from all angles. 

The farmers are beginning to 
show something of the spirit of 
'76. They refuse to have others 
think and act for them. They ' 
claim to be able to figure out on 
their own account why they are 
for or against — being able toread, 
write and think. How strange, 
-how very strange! — Thief River

One does not have to be a seventh

have any unusual amount of shrewd- 
ness to observe that politicians who 
wish to succeed must pay some at- 
tention to the needs of- the farmer. 
The legislator need not necessarily, be 
a "dirt" farmer, a term which is very 
much overworked, but unless he has 
the required amount of gray matter 
to enable him to see that the farmers 
are^sick and tired of hyperbole and 
promises, when action is wanted, he 
will be relegated to the scrap heap.

In spite of the noise that is being 
made in certain quarters about the 
evil' of tax exempt securities, yet the 
states, counties, cities, villages and 
districts issued [about a billion and a 
third dollars worth of such securities 
last year, the total now outstanding 
being estimated as between S14,000,- 
|000,000 and 520,000.000. Perhaps a 
good way to stop the drain .of these 
tax exempt securities' would be for the 
states and municipalities to stop issu- 
ing them. — Morris Tribune.

In the last issue of the Detroit Re- 
cord,.appears a communication from 
Senator .Knute "Nelson attacking or- 
ganized labor, and particularly ] ail- 
wad labor, as $he stumbling block to 
prosperity for the farmer. We 'dis- 
agree with the Senator when he takes 
the position that labor is being.grbssly 
overpaid at this time. No doubt rail- 
way rates could be 'reduced materially 
at- this time if labor could be hired on 
a pre-war basis, but it must be evi- 
dent to all faip-minded people that the 
cost -of living is much too high to 



enable. labor to exist unde 
order of things, 

If that is not .true, The Tribune 
would like to have someone figure out 
from the standpoint of present high 
rents, increased cost of clothing, sloes 
and other necessaries of life, how the 
laborer is to support his family on 
less than 60; to 75 cents per hour, the 
rate complained of. -It simply cannot 
be done, and if has been amply dem- 
onstrated that lahbr earns the ad- 
vanced wages. where efficiency in n an- 
agentait has been employed." Look at 
Hjenry Ford, for instance, who pays 
his men a minimum wage of $6 Iper 
day. No one has ever, heard him com- 
plain of the wages of his men, Ibut 
rather has he inclined . to the Anew 
that labor should be granted -furtjher 
concessions in 'the line of_shorter hours 
and irnproved working conditions; |

certain element of hicompatibijitytbe-

Governor Nestos in his- message- to 
the North Dakota legislature made 
some*adical recommendations with 
reference tp. office holding. He ad- 
vocates four-year terms for elective 
state, county and district officials, 
with four-J^ear terms for representa- 
tives and eight years for senators. 
Legislative sessions every four years 
instead of every two years. He -also 
advocates a reduction of the member- 
ship of the house and senate of, North 
Dakota, restricting the senate mem- 
bership to 30 a^nd the house member- 
ship to 75. It was a splendid mes- 
sage, full of good sense," and much 
good, would result to the state of 
North Dakota if the recommendations 
were followed. In a state likeT3inne- 
sota, with its varied resources, legis- 
lative sessions every two years would 
seem to be imperative because of the 
necessity for adjusting tax problems, j 
etc., but in a purely agricultural com- 
munity like North Dakota) a session 
every four years might answer the 
purpose, providing, of course, the gov- 
ernor could convene the legislature in ; 
extra session in case of emergency.

Editor of The Tribune: 

Answering till' letter' of Mr. Meyer, 
consulting engineer, dated January 1, 
1923, concerning the Red Lake pro- 
ject probably appearing iiAhis issue 
of your paper, will say that the whole 
communication is a mass if misstate 
ment of fact and of grasping at 
straws, in 'a vain endeavor to justify 
Meyers in this nefarious plan of hav- 
ing a power dam and channel, of huge 
benefit to the water power interests, 
constructed complete .and financed 
.solely so far as initial cost is con- 
cerned, by the farmers and farming 
lands along the channel. 

It is inconceivable to the writer that 
honest men who know the facts of 
this unholy thing can still attempt to 
impose this unjustifiable burden upon 
the farmer's back, while theT water 
power interests, in their entrenched 
power, sit silently by and applaud the 
efforts of this. self-constituted advo- 

-6 relation with [the power interests and 

jjwe are compiled to believe the truth 

^, jof his statement that of his 18 years' 

' experience as! a , hydraulic engineer, 

only two months were spent in work- 

ing for power companies. 

The writer jcannot (imagine how. Mr.- 
Meyers got hip 18 years' •experience as 
a water power engineer unless his re- 
lations to the water . power interests 
were closer than his letter discloses, 
for the reason that jit- is ordinarily 
only the power companies,, who are 
employing Water power, engineers, and 
there is therefore not 'much opportun- 
ity to become highly experienced ; as 
such engineerlexcept in the employ of 
such companies. ' Mr. Meyers' com- 
munication is so earnest along this 
line that the [inference arises there- 
from that Mr. Meyers ■ evidently be- 
lieves that some stigma or reproach 
would attach to him jeven if employed 
in the past by these! power interests. 
We wish to assure Mr. Meyers that 
such is not the opinion of the writer. 

We are glad' to knbw, however, and 
I am sure-theifarmers Spaying the bills 
will be likewise glad to know that Mr. 
Meyers-is not] contaminated b,y previ 

jstrong as ever, 'became in the first 
;palce our farmers can't pay any more 
'. anyhow, and in the second, place We 
object to being compelled to finance 
jthis for the benefit of the water power 
interests. We' are informed that one 
of the big water power companies has 
grabbed every water power site on the 
river not yet used and it looks like ttie 
Conservancy Board is trying to do 
more for .them than it is for the farm- 
ers who have to pay for it. 

! Yours truly,

' Mr. Meyers is in error when he says 
that he testified the capitalized bene-

His figures were "between 550,000.00

has to go down in his sock and get two 
dollars to pajf one dollar benefit for 
himself and one doHar benefit for the 
poor .water power companies. 
- 'The fact i-emains, which no amount 
of sophistry or cleverness on the part 
of Mr. Meyers} can remove, conceal or. 
explain, that the Cdnservancy board 
and Mr. Meyers are back of an un- 
righteous scheme whereby the benefits 
of the project] accruing to the water 
power interests, amounting to not less 
than 5240,000.^0, accrues and is made 
possible by assessments upon the 
farmers' lands only, that the power 
companies pay/ no part of the initial 
cost and do not help finance the pro- 
ject, that, a bond issue by the county' 
based upon these farm assessments 
alone is the only possible plan of get- 
ting the money to pay for the job, 
while .some time, after the cost is all 
paid by the farmers, and after the 

Editor of Tribune: 

The statements which I have made 
in your paper the past few weeks have 
set forth certain important considera- 
tions relating to the Red Lake project 
which were not brought out at the re- 
cent hearing, and which I desired io 
bring before your readers. !" 1 

Inasmuch as Mr. Brown, in his com- 
munications, has merely indulged in 
personal abuse, and in his last letter- 
in particular has .presented no facts 
whatsoever relating to the feasibility 
of the! project or to the desirability of 
various means of financing it, I shall 
make ho further comments. He mav 
continue to "throw mud" as long as 
he desires to do so; it will not change 
the color of my past professional rec- 
ord, of which I shall never have reason 
to be ashamed. | 

Yours very truly, ' j 


Sir. Mevers tried to cloud the water P 001 ' fc"™er has the assessments all 
further by quoting a clause in the war I' alc ! U P' perhajjs the water powers are 


ngmeers report concerning munici- 
>al water supply and then by reasen- 
ng therefrom, adducing some infer- 
'rico? or evidence that will support the 
mrighteous plan proposed as regards 
he power companies. 

Mr. Meyers should be able, even 
' hromrh his mVhly colored glasses, to 
: ee that municipalities are the peonle 
' hemselvos. glad and willing to ,pny 
or benefits received, while the power 
interests he argues for are bands of 
private parties seeking to get some- 
thing, for nothing. • 

Mr. Meyers denies that the war de- 
T artment engineers made exhaustive 
study. .411 we have to say in refer- 
ence to that is that all the testimony 
rf all the entr'neers on this nrMect 
showed that their own examinations 
vore very meagre and 'that they all 
relied upon the survey and report of 
the war engineer's previously made. 
Ip. fact, Mr. Meyers hinise'f testified 
that he never saw Red . lake or 7?.ed 
Tjal-e ri*-er ne/n- the lake, but two 
times prior to the hearing, once : sev- 
eral ve^r-s p cro. before this project was

bi-ief visit to get all the data and in-. 

to be compelled : to contribute • their 
share so that j this' board will have 
more money: tojspend elsewhere. It is 
a beautiful thing to contemplate, but 
thank God, thehvill of Mr. Meyers and 
of the conservancy board is not su- 
preme in this I matter- and they are 

bound to fail. 

'Respectfully yours, 


Editor The Trijinne: 

The farmers |do not think that the 
Thief River F.-^'s Times is fair about 
the Red Lake River pmjeet. but that 
it is working hard for the Conservancy

In the near future taxes will become 
confiscatory unless a halt. is ordered 
on the [present method of issuing 
bonds. Here in Milan. 20 years ago 

wo voted 

bonds for waterworks anti 

yet not a penny has been paid" on the 
principal. Bond issue's for the erec- 
tion of a school house in the early in- 
fancy of the village remain v unpaid, 
although the building itself was con- 
demned as unfit for school purposes 
and wrecked several yeai-s ago. Our 
. record isjnot any worse than. that t-f 
the average village or city; If thi~ 
practice of piling up indebtedness is 
.continued, there will come a day of 
reckoning. Our legislature should 
take steps" to forbid the issuing of 
bonds unj ess provisions are made for 
a sinking fund to take care of the 
principal j when bonds became due. 
Perhaps it would be still better if all 
bonds wpre made payable on the 
amortization plan, a small sum an- 
■ plying on the principal each year in 
addition to the interest. In 20 ar SO 
years the* indebtedness would be paid. 
In the past the people have mortgag- 
ed .the future too much, and; we ave 
beginning to feel the effect of it.-^

Red River Valley Produces 
Dependable Crop; Prom- 
^iNew Industry. ' 


(By T. J. jMcCall, Horticultufrst, 
Xorthwest'j Experiment Station.) 
T .t has long been know that sugar 
beets and other root crops grow to a 
high state of perfection in the Red 
l:iver Valley! The acreage, however, 
has been limited to the need of roots 
for live stock feeding. Since 1919, 
from one to two thousand acres have 
; been grown and marketed through a 
i\Iinnesola sugar, refining company. 
The future development of the sugar 
beet industry! in" Northwestern Minne- 
sota is dependent upon the 'acreage 
. needs of the present sugar" refining 
.company, and the establishment of 
' other factories in or contiguous to this 
region- "' 

Dependable Crop. 
The sugar beet crop has proved very 
dependable in "yield during the seven 
years of trialiat the Northwest Exper- 
iment Statoiri, averaging a little more 
than ten tons per acre. The average 
yield from fai-ms growing sugar beets 
during 1922 fvas somewhat less than 
the :Experiment Station yield, how- 
ever, 12 and j 15 ton yields have been 
reported. - . ' 

! High! Sugar Content 
The i sugar! content of beets grown 
in the Red River Valley is quite high, 
averaging from 15 to 17 per cent. An- 
alvsisTn'adeih 1913 from beets- grown 
from commercial seed averaged less 
than 14 per cent. However, the fact 
established that beets from good

this district. r The cultivation should 
start jus ; as soon as the rows are vis- 
ible, can being' taken not to cover the 
young : eedlirigs. The cultivations 
should b i frequent, often enough to 

ar dust mulch and keep the 
weeds w ill wider control, from three 
to five i ultivations are given during 
the seaspn. 

Harve iting should start early in Oc- 

metinies the date of jnarvest- 
ing is « >ecified in the contract with 
the suj ar company, but ! growers 
should i i average years plan to get 

out of the ground before Oc- 

;h. ' The grower should limit 

his acre; ge to an amount that can be 

with dispatch and in season. 

The digger or root lifter 'that 
mounted on a wheel track, which is 
horse di iwn and lifts one rjow 'at a 
time, hs s .'proved most satisfactory. 
"Contrac : labor" proves best' at har- 
vesting ime for northern Minnesota, 
for the grower is assured of help at a 
time there is generally a great de' 
mand for men. The "contract laborer" 
tops' andj poles the roots as the final 
task of ms contract, • 

Cost lot Growing Sugar Beets. 
The cost of growing sugar beets de- 
pends greatly upon the .distance E 
grower is from market or ; loading 
point, the amount of work required to 
get the land .in shape for the crop, the 
cultivations required and the timeli- 
ness of [the work. The actual ca^h 
outlay is] about the same for all loca- 
tions: The cash expense includes 
seed, "contract labor," housing oi 
quarters 1 for laborers and labor fur- 
nished by the grower for all team 
operations, loading and hauling. Much 
of the team labor is generally; done by 
the grower and is not included in the 
cash expense, but must of necessity 
be charged to the crop. Contract la- 
bor costs $18 to $20 per acre; various 
percentages of which are to; be paid- 
by the grower during the season, the 
balance to be paid when the! crop is 
harvested. In many cases the com- 
pany guarantees the final payment for 
labor ouf of the receipts of the crop. 
The returns per ton have generally

The acreage contracted for by a 
grower should depend upon several 
factors, namely: amount of land suit- 
able for the drop, eompetjfion of other 
■ crops or other far moperations with 
the beet crop for labor, and the fa- 
cilities and equipment for growing, 
handling. andj disposing "of the crop. 
Beets Need Good Soil Condition 

tops malte excellent feed for cattle or 
sheep; tile tops can either be pastured 
or fed inlracks. There is a great deal 
of waste! in pasturing, hence many 
growers lltaul in the tops and state 
that thesj are well- repaid for the time 
and trouble. In some instances beet 
growers fcave used the tops for ensil- 
age and report that a good quality of

| Lone Sheep Adapts Self; 
j to City Life and Likes It 

Several months ago — away last 
summer— George Chri'sto proprietor of 
the Minnesota Candy Kitchen, brought 
a little lamb to town and choredlit out 
on various vacant lots about the up- 
town section of Thief River' I Balls. 
Day by day it grew and soon Idevel- 
pped into a full-fledged sheep. It 
seamed to like the busy activities of 
the city as against the .droll country

until today you couldn't drive it bad?

would kick up its heels and did from

of the prevalence of sow thistles .in

of land useless and valueless. -

Thief River Falls hasn't enjoyed the

year one (1). There have been win- 
ters milder'than others, but summing 
them all .up it would be difficult to re- 
member a day when thawing weather 
was the rule. 

Commencing about ten days ago. the 
weather has remained consistently 
mild. While there, appears to be a 
greater amount of snow on the ground 
than was the case during the winter 
of 1921-1922,. the climate since the 
first cold spell shortly after Thanks- 
giving has'been "twice as agreeable." 
. Tuesday,! however, something mora 
like winter set in again and spoiled 
,the whole ithihg. The thermometer 
got to playing-so close down around 
zero that there wasn't any fun about - 
it. On second consideration, perhaps 
it is best that your relatives remain- 
in California for a couple of weeks ii»

before that I only have the highest

Vnaking any personal reflection upon 
any of the; gentlemen mentioned in the

Mr. Aubolj has taken my stand in this

A new department, that of fat -iou 1 -

stock Show which is held p*'erv fa 1 !

rirls were members of poultry clubs 
n 1922. Heretofore there has been 
io special state event to 'close poultry

Government; prohibition agents -tell 
us that moonshine liquor is being sold 
in this community and that- as a mat- 
ter of fact is being sold in nearly 
every community. 

In one ;of the national magazines a 
series of articles laying bare the mon 
key shines of the moonshiners pre- 
sents enough evidence to indicate that 
there is, largely speaking, unrestricted 
country-wide traffic going on in in- 
toxicants; that truck lines carrying by 
day and by night .the illegal stuff," lace 
the natioi ; that; much money is being 
used to 'grease" these routes,' and 
that the novel deceptions to provide 
safety from arrest are continually be- 
ing invented, j In one southern dis- 
^ trict a man who hacl been driving 
what looked like a missionary wagon 
with "Jesus Saves" printed on * the 
sides, was arrested and the vehicle 
was foimc; to contain as choice a line 
of moonshine as ever made a rabbit 
spit in a bull ;dog's eye. 

In Mini eapolis recently, a crossing 
gateman vas^shot down in cold blood 
because tie moonshine a couple of 
men in an automobile had soaked up 
'in St. Paul joints had put murder in 
their hearts. Near Elk River a few 
days late]', a former member of the 
Minnesota legislature was heartlessly 
murdered by a man who had lured- 
him to a school house under the pre- 
text that they ; were to pick a load of 

The luie of the outlawed liquor,

So it goes; the public smiles; jokes

St. Paul appears to be waking up 
from its' -'long Rip Van Winkle sleep, 
and now "that the old -burg has tasted, 
blood them .is no telling how far the 
town will to in its efforts to keep up 
with Minneapolis. It- has been an un- 
equal race up to this time, with St. 
Paul a docile second, but :the Ford 
plant miij change the entire aspect. 
Just why St. Paul has been content to 
play secorid fiddle to Minneapolis has 
always .been a puzzle, andj can only 
be explained on the theory that St. 
Paul was-Aoaded down with; old seeds 
who had made their pile, and put in 
their declining years growling at new 
comers, while Minneapolis became the 
mecca of [fortune hunters and young 
blood which craved company and capi- 
tal. I 
' Something has- happened in the 
Saintly City, to be sure. People are 
wondering whether it is a case of

energetic ind debonair chief executive 
of.t'ie Capital City, has managed to 
infuse a 1 ttle of his own enthusiasm 
into his c< nstituents. Anyway it is to 
be noted that for the first time in 
years and years and years the various 
organizati ins worked together in per- 
fect harm< ny, not caring a hurrah who 
was to benefit, just so the old town

The Better Way 
to Health 

, The human body is often com- 
pared lo an electrical machine, 
its many parts receiving the 
"power" t.q do their work -from 
the "dynamo" in the brain. 

As in all electrical machines 
there must be two jvires, one 
conveying power to the parts 
and one completing the circuit; 
so in the human machine there 
are two kinds of nerves, one car- 
rying mental impulses (power) 
to the parlsj the other carrying 
vibrations to tlieibrain, and com- 
pleting the circuit. 

Break the circuit in the elec- 
tric machine, and the machinery 
steps. Deacrease the amount o I 
power passing over the circuit, 
and the work is lessened. ISreak 
the circuit in the human machine 
and the organ stops work — be- 
comes dead; decrease the amount 
of power passing over the cir- 
cuit and the organ itself be- 
comes diseased. 

As Chiropractors we are con- 
cerned with keeping all parts of 
the human . machine supplied 
with full power to do their work. 
If you are sick in any way, let 
us examine your spine- and ex- 
plain to you jUBt/how the "pow- 
er" may be shut off or decreased 
by misaligned vertebrae. Con- 
sultation and spinal analysis is 

X-Ray pictures bring out all de- 
tails, eliminates guesswork and 
assures the best results.

Three-Year-Old Guernsey 
. By F. B. Conklin Deve lops 
nesota Record For Om s 
Production Under Official 

■ *?. 

The Tribune is inordinately proud 
to announce that Thief RiveivFalls is 
now the home of a real champion, the 
news having leaked out. that nothing 
• but sudden death can prevent Lady 
Bruce of Clovercrest, a three-year-old 
i>ure bred Guernsey cow belonging to 
F. B. Conklin of this city from win- 
ning the state title for butter produc- 
tion in her class. 

Lady Bruce had produced 616 
pounds of butterfat up to. January 1, 
and she had approximately 68 pounds 
to make in 50 days, the record being 
completed during the closing days of 
February. She made 49 pounds in 
December and it will thus be seen 
that she has. a mortal cinch on the 
state title which nothing, but death 
can rob her of. 

The record established by Lady 
Bruce of Clovercrest is a most credit- 
able performance, being performed 
under ordinary farm conditions. In 
most record breaking tests, the per- 
formers are , the pampered pets of 
rich 'owners, who bestow upon them 
all the careiand attention of royalty. 
Not so with Lady Bruce, who received 
ordinary carej such as her brothers 
and sisters received. 

Mr. Conklin is entitled to great 
credit for the : development "of a State 
champion from his excellent herd, and 
we trust he may reap the full benefit 
of the fame which will jcome to both 
him and Thief River Falls as a result. 
When the test .is .completed The Trib- 
une hopes to get a good photograph 
'of Lady Bruce for publication.

The sequel to the recent agitation 
for a new Great Northern depot in 
Thief River Falls was the visit yes- 
terday of General Superintendent T. J. 
Gavin of Duluth, Division Freight 
Agent J. H. Griffin of Grand Forks. 
General Master Carpenter E. A. Mills 
of St. Paul and the latter's assistant, 
T. Thygeson, division master carpen- 
ter' at Crookston. The officials had 
their private car side-tracked here yes- 
terday forenoon, coming in from the 
south, and called for a meeting with a 
citizens' committee at 2 o'clock at the 
Commercial club rooms. 

Heeding the insistent demand for a 
new depot, the officials came here to 
sound out local sentiment with refer- 
ence to location and type of architec- 
ture. -VThe meeting was presided over 
by Dr/*H. W. Froehlich. president of 
the Commercial club, and short talks 
were made by the visiting officials ana 
a number of local citizens. Some sen- 
timent was expressed for a depot to be 
located at the west end of Third street, 
but the consensus of opinion favored 
the pesent locatidp"on Main avenue, 
and this was concurred in by the Great 
Northern officials* who stated that 
trackage facilities of adequate dimen- 
sions were available at that point. 

It is likely from the discussion over 
style of architecture to be followed 
that Thief River Falls will get a stuc- 
co building as Master Carpenter Mills 
explained that brick construction was 
too expensive to be considered at this 

' Just^ how. soon construction will be 
started was not 'divulged by the offi- 
cials, .who claimed the matter would 
first have to be .considered by the 
board of directors of the Great North- 
ern. It is evident, however, that no- 
tice has been taken by the Great 
Northern of the general dissatisfaction 
existing here over the cramped and in- 
adequate depot facilities, and it is rea- 
sonably safe to expect that action of 
some kind will be taken in the very 
near future. 

Anyway, Thief River Falls feels 
greatly encouraged over the show of 
interest so far exhibited by the rail- 
road officials. - . 


On January 19 occured the death of 
Milton Herbert Jung, the two-vear- 
old son of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Jung. 
Death came after a lingering illness 
of several months. A private funeral 
was held Monday at the Jung home 
on Main avenue. Interment was made 
in Greenwood cemetery.

John B.'Myrland, former resident of 
Thief River Falls, died in Minneapolis, 
his present home, January 23, of can- 
cer. Deceased had been connected 
with the Hanson and Barzen Milling 
company here and later was employed 
at their offices' in Minneapolis. 

■Mr. Myrland had suffered for a num- 
ber of years from cancer and had been 
a patient at the Mayo Hospital at Ro- 
chester up to a short time ago., when 
he returned to Minneapolis, where 
death occurred. 

The body will be shipped to Thief 
River Falls, where the funeral will 
take place Friday at 1 o'clock P. M. 
at the Masonic temple. The services 
will be in charge of the Masonic lodge.

Thos. H. Smith, of the State Bank 
of Mavie, was in the city Monday on 
business connected with his bank. Mr. 
Smith, who is a former publisher, has 
given considerable thought and study 
to. the rural credits act now pending 
in the Legislature, and in conversa- 
tion with the editor of The Tribune 
raised a t new point in connection with 
the law,' namely, the fact that it will 
have a tendency to definitely fix the 
price of farm lands and will thus pre- 
vent any undue inflation oh the part 
of dealers. When a purchaser con- 
templates buying a piece of land car- 
! rying a state or federal loan, the ;ip- 
ipraisal will greatly determine tjie fair 
| selling price. It goes without saying 
, that Mr. Smith . strongly favors the 
; passage of the act on the basis of 70 
per cent loans on the basis of appraisal 
and 40 per cent of the insurable value 
;of the improvements. Such a law 
would rapidly bring this section" out 
of the present slough of despondency.

|Nora in "A Doll's Housed 
i Called a Modern Woman 


iNazimova, Creator of Cbief Feminine 
I Character in Ibsen's Famous Drama, 
' Declares That Doll-Wife Stands'as 
! Emblem of All Womanhood. • 

1 Nazimpva, who can be crec ited with 
-actually popularizing Henrik Ibsen, 
the Norwegian playwright, in this 
country, and who; seen as Nora 
lin the Ibsen classic, "A Doll's House," 
| at the Lyceum theatre Friday and Sat- 
urday, has this to say of the character 
in which she won her greatest fame 
jas an emotional actress: 
I "Nora lis a leal modern -woman. 
That she Ididn't start a series of emo- 
tional affairs when she found she 
jcouldnjt live with her husband under 
jthe humiliation of being a mere doll- 
baby, proves Ibsen's insight in the 
feminine character. .-' 

"No, not all women, it's true. Some 
poor, brainless little things, when they 
lare thrown over by a lover or! a sweet- 
jheart, just naturally turn to ithe easi- 
est 'way left to them. For Example, 
jDumas' Camille was such a woman. 
'.But not Ibsen's Nora. Far, from it. 
jShe turned up her mind, got into a 
■Snappy looking business suit and start- 
jed forth into the world to discover the 
legitimate objective for woman's en- 
ergies. | | 
! "Nora Helmer was a human sort of 
woman, at first trying in every way to 
please her husband, playing the baby 
fiaw and then, catering to his whims', 
trying to j amuse him and flatter him, 
gust as women do. But when that 
didn't work out, and she found -no 
understanding of her own rights in the 
•home andihousehold, she sought a way 
'to find herself— and left' him. 
'• "Nora is an emblem^— an emblem of 
all womanhood. She stands for free- 
dom, independence, destiny and wo- 
man's right to her God-given inherit- 
ance — a place in : the world, ,equal to 
man, mentally, spiritually, physically."

years will place most of them back on 
their feet. , 

When the return to an even kee! 
comes, as it surely will, it will be 
found that the quest for farm land 
will turn to this direction, and The 
Tribune would not be surpried to see 
every man who really wants to part 
with his holdings in Pennington dur- 
ing the year 1923. given an opportun ■ 
ity to do so. 

But if such a man sells, where is he 
going to better himself? He may go 
'west, he may go south, or east, or 
north, but he will return to good old 
Pennington county better satisfied 
and in most cases will be glad to re- 
purchase his old farm at a good ad 
vance in price. 

Mark carefully this prediction: Land 
prices in Pennington county will neves 
again be as reasonable as they will be 
in the year of our Lord, 1923. An-, 
our ladvice to those who have a gooii 
farm is to hang onto it".

The 1 iennial effort to restore capi- 
tal pun shment for murder in Minne- 
sota is inder way. The palpable fact 
of stea ly; increase in crimes of vio- 
lence iii this state may lead the pres- 
ent Legislature to put aside the emo- 
tional jbjections of sentimentalists 
and con sider the growing need for the 
deterrent effect of legal execution of 

Potential murderers are now but 
little affected by the prospect that, if 
caught and 'convicted, they may have! 
to go to prison for life. They expect 
in the first place to escape detection. 
They expect, in the 'second -place, if 
caught, to escape conviction. They 
expect in the third place, ^f caught 
and convicted, to get their, sentences 
commuted or to win full pardon. While 
there is life, 'there is hope. But if 
they see death at the end of the pas- 
sage, thjat will be a far different mat- 

The deterrent effect ol capital pun- 
ishment! is beyond question. Yet the 
St. Cloud Journal-Press urges with 
elaborate sarcasm that it be enhanced 
by making a holiday affair of each 
execution, with moving picture cam- 
eras going, circumstantial press re- 
ports, :xcursion rates and excited 

On tie contrary that would be the 
best way to nullify the deterrent ef- 
fect. Make of the condemned mur- 
derer a hero, put him in the /limelight 
where the emotional may sentimen- 
talize oyer him, and he will go to his 
fate with bursting pride. His ego- 
mania will furnish an anodyne for the 
ordeal. | 

But if the ; condemned murderer 
knows that at some unnamed hour he 
will be ed to the fatal chair, with no 
excited throngs to: watch him and no- 
chance :o play the hero; if he knows 
that by the shifting of a switch his 
life will be snuffed out without warn- 
ing in expiation of his crime — ah r that 
is some ;hihg to dread, something to 
ponder iver. If the penalty is hang- 
ing or. £ xphyxiation under similar cir- 
cumstar ces, the psychology of it would 
be the same. 

Give :;he potential murderer a fate 
like thj t to fear, instead of a few 
years ir prison with early freedom in 
prospec :, and he will be far more likel> 
to stay his bloody hand. — Minneapolis

While The -Tribune is in hearty ac 
cord with those who look to the Leir 
islature for the strictest economy ii 
expenditures, yet it fails to see am 
real economy in cuvtailn-ent of thi 
highway program proposed by Com 
missioner Babcock. . : 

Considerable opposition has devel- 
oped to his proposed plan for issuing 
two 10-million dollar bond issues by 
whi:h he hopes, to bring to an early 
completion pie highway program 
which was contemplated under Amend 1 
mcrt No. 1. Such opposition is not 
based altogether on sound* argument, 
the main opposition being on the 
gro irid of increased taxes.. 

As a matter of fact, these bonds 
can lot bring any increase in taxes, 
since they will be paid oft under the 
povisions of the automobile, tax, but 
they will -provide, ready money with 
which to give the eountry districts 
needed roads which would, otherwise 
be : milt piece-meal. 
' "Let us pay for our roads as we go," 
says the opposition, but it. may be 
pointed out that there is just" as much 
sense in building a home by erecting 
the foundation one year, the first story 
the next, the superstructure the next, 
the interior finishing next, and so on, 
as there is in this continual tearing 
up of country roads. Our traffic de- 
mands have changed since the days of 
thejpoll tax system of building roads. 
and : we must govern ourselves accord- 

Manifestly a small section of good 
road on a given stretch is of little use 
as the farmer who hauls his product 
must adjust his load to conform to 
the bad stretch, and likewise the trav- 
eler! in his touring car must judge a 
road by its bad spots. By all means 
let us get our roads fixed up— and that

In ot tier words, the farmer, though 
he may have no collateral to speak : of, 
if he h: s a record for honesty and has 
shown m inclination to work, may* se- 
cure a reasonable/line of credit .where 
he cqull hardly hope to even gain an 
audien( e with the. manager of a large 
consolidated bank operated on set 
rules. The country districts need the

Judge Norman E. Peterson used the

would 1 e extended 30 days more.

Bankers and legislators who shy at 
the proposition of a deposit guaranty 
law because the same was advocated 
by the Nonpartisan League, have a 
mighty jpoor conception of public duty. 
In this connection, it should be remem- 
bered that nearly everything which the 
People's party stood for in 1896, which 
was then considered wild-eyed and so- 
cialistic, has since been enacted into 
law by one or the other of the old par- 
ties. And so there are many things 
which the Nonpartisan League stands 
for at the present time which should 
be given proper' consideration by the 
Legislature— among them being the 
bank guaranty bill. '

On one of his frequent trips to Gon- 
viek Monday, Ole Lund, well known 
farmer of Eden township, brought the 
carcass of a freak calf which was 
viewed with interest by esveral resi- 
dents. The unusual feature about the 
calf 'was two heads growing out from 
the body in a forked manner. Both 
heads appeared to be fully developed 
and of like size. Other than that the 
calf was perfectly normal. It had 
been born Saturday and lived but a 
few minutes after birth. Mr. Lund 
stated that it was the first freak calf 
to appear among his herd and he has 
seen but one other like it in his neigh- 
borhood during his lengthy residence 
there. He is anxious that the carcass 
be placed in the hands of someone 
who would be interested to the (extent 
to have it mounted and placed on ex- 
hibition with other curiosities. — Gon-

The lath industry proved to become 
quite an addition to Bagley. Hundreds 
[of cords of lath bolts have already 
[been piled up near the mill. Opera-

!are taking advantage of the good

Ben F. Benson, from east of Ste- 
■ phen, who' had his leg fractured by 
! a cave-in at the gravel pit when haul- 
] ing gravel east of Middle River a few 
I weeks ago, had to submit to an opera- 
tion yesterday at the Warren hosni- 
ttal, where he was taken after lie be- 
'came injured. The fracture was of 
'so serious a nature that it was found 
.impossible to save the injured leg, 
j which had to be amputated five or six 
j inches below the knee. Friends of 
!Mr. Benson sympathize with him in 
his great misfortune. He is a son of 
Mr. and Mrs. P. F. Benson, former 
residents of the northern part of the 
county, now living in Warren.— War-

Three young men narrowly escaped 
death at Hutchinson last week when 
an aerial wire which they were hang- 
ing came in'contact with a high power 
tension wire which carried' 13,500 volts 
of electricity. Two blocks of high 
wire were burned out and a large por- 
tion -of the city of Hutchinson iwas in 
darkness for several hours. Which in- 
dicates that great care should lie exer- 
cised in putting up airinls, espeeiallv 
when the same are in close nroxiniitv 
to high power electric wires. In this 
connection the first paragraph! of the 
national electric code concerning ra- 
dios is here quoted: "Antennas out- 
side of buildings shall not cross over 
or under electric light or power wires 
of any circuit of more than six hun- 
dred (600) volts, or railway trolley or 
feeder wires, nor shall it be[ so lo- 
cated that a failure of either antenna 
or of the above mentioned e'e^tric 
light or p,ower wires can result in a 
contact between the .antenna and such 
electric light or power wires." j

For, Kellogg's Corn Flakes hit-the-spot as no other cereal ever could; 
and they are a continuous taste-thrill!

crunchy and crispy to the very last degreej Kellogg's Corn Flakes 
are really and truly a revelation in good things to eat — for breakfast, 
for any meal and for between-times nibbles! 

How all your folks will delight to get Kell ogg's ; how they'll appre-

or hard to eat! You'll see' big and little bowls come back for "some

Jly Christmas Vacation. I 
I had a pretty] good time during my 
'vacation. On Christmas day I was 
busy looking over the presents Santa 
Glaus brought me. He was good to me 
this Christmas. I In the afternoon we 
' went 'visiting and had a fine time, b'ut 
we nearly froze] to death on the way. 
When we started for home it * was 
pretty late. Wis had to work for. a 
few 'days after that, we were out chop- 
ping wood and worked around outside. 
We ;'.'so had to (lo the housework that 
was :he hardest! 

On New Year's eve we stayed up 
un' il 2 o'clock. | We popped corn and 
nir-.lo' candy and many other things. 

One night after Christmas we heard 
an awful' noise coming down the road. 
' Mv sister and il were the only ones in 
the house. We wore kind of scared at 
first, but then we looked out of the 
window just iiJ .time to see some 
Christmas Fools coming into the yard. 
They started to jig around on the 
porch, so we went and opened the door. our p] ace 
We were jure busys pulling masks off. - - 
We wouldn't have had to do this be- 
cause we knew them all anyway. We 
got the mask off one of them when 
the boys came in the house. We had 
all kinds of f unj that night. 

. Last Saturday night we went to a 
party south of our place. We left for 
home about half past 2. * 

On Sunday we were invited away to 
dinner, but we couldn't go as we had 
company. Thai was the best Christ- 
mas vacation I ever spent.

Alfred Rasmussenls Placed 

Under Arrest Tuesday 

Afternoon. ; 

Quart Bottle .of Liquor Is 

Found Secreted in Office 

of Auto Company. 

Alfred Rasmussen, proprietor of the 

garage (formerly known as the Sun- 
dahl garage), was arrested late Tues- 
day afternoon by Sheriff 0. L. Ihle 
and Deputy. L. O. Kongelf on a charge 
of having moonshine on the premises. 
The two officials were assisted in the 
arrest by Chief , of Police Erickson. 

One quart bottle of liquor «was 
found in the office of the garage, ac- 
cording to the officei-s, and the moon- 
shine confiscated. . ,—■ 

Rasmussen appeared . before Judge 
Tarrant in Municipal court last night 
and was bound over to the February 
term of the district court. The judge 
fixjid bail at $500, which was furnished 
by the accused. As a result of his ar- 
rest yesterday, Rasmussen faces two 
counts at the next term of court, hav- 
ing been arrested several weeks" ago 
when officers found liquor in the cafe 
operated by him. 

According to Deputy Kongelf of the 
sheriff's' force, who was in

Here Last Evening.! 

If anyone entertained the idea that 
Thief River Falls and adjacent terri- 
tory was lacking in enthusiasm over 
the prospect of securing an allotment 
of 1,500 acres for sugar beets this 
season, 'such notion must have been 
dispelled when representatives from 
twenty-one towns mingled -yith four berg!' Henrv Young' 
hundred citizens and farmers of Thief ' -* - - 

River Falls, and placed the sugar beet 
question on a solid . foundation by 
oversubscribing the allotted acreage. 

Mayor Bratrud opened the meeting 
promptly at 8:30, statine briefly what 
had been accomplished by 'the local 
committee consisting of himself, H. W. 
Protzeller and Math Barzen.j He then 
introduced Mr. Protzeller, who out- 
lined the work of the committee in 
securing the 1,500 acres allotted by 
the sugar company. The company al- 
ready has applications for 100.000 
acres, but decided to try thiSj territory

the raid, the officials approached the 
garage and immediately went in 
search of evidence. They entered the 
office and soon found what they were 
looking for in the form of a quart bot- 
tle 'of "white mule" hidden away in a 
small box in one corner of the little 
room. Sheriff Ihle was in the rear of 
the premises and approached the of- 
fice, accompanied by Rasmussen. 

When confronted with the evidence 
uncovered by Kongelf, Rasmussen at 
first denied that he had knowledge of 
the fact that there was liquor on the 
premises. " 

In a statement to The Tribune yes- 
terday, Deputy Kongelf stated that 
the sheriff's force is determined to rid 
Thief River Falls of the illicit liquor 
jiyil:;and declared that the officials in- 
?&iU to make raids upon every place 
'under., suspicion. Coming close upon 
a raid conducted last week by govern- 
ment men, the way of the transgress- 
ing moonshine peddler is commencing 
to look dark, indeed. 

"We intend to make the going 
mighty tough for these fellows who 
persist in .peddling their stuff infhis 
community/' said Deputy Kongelf. 
"and we're not going to rest until ev- 
ery last one of them gives up the traf- 
fic. The raid yesterday is a mere 
forerunner of what will follow unless 
conditions improve."

covering his experience of several 
years, his opinion being that the beets 
can be profitably raised in this terri

questions for some time. { 

County Agent McCann. who told the 
meeting that he had worked for three 
years in a sugar factory at j Chippewa 
Falls, Wisconsin, was the next speak- 
er, and he dwelt largely upon soil con-

beets. The farmers present showed ' 
their "interest by firing a long list of 
questions at Mr. McCann, who came 
through the ordeal with flying* color?'.

upon one point, the fact that sugar

the hearing conducted on December 1 
in this city by Chas. AllbrigHt, re- 
feree for the Industrial Commission, 
much testimony was taken, and the 
referee in his findings holds that Mr. 
Herron was employed by Fontaine, 
who is held to be an employe of Col- 
saet Bros., thus establishing the claim 
of the widow to full protection under 
the compensation act. 

The av/ard of $7,500 will be paid 
Mrs. 'Herron in weekly installments, 
and in addition thereto she will re- 
ceive $150 for fpneral exDenses. While 
an appeal may be taken, the facts in 
the case have been, established, and it

Pete Morse, promulgator of the

cerning : rules" and regulations that 
should in future govern the feame and 
suggested proposals that would assure 
the various clubs composing the league 
of better strength, it being the opinion 
among several that the "good" men

clubs. In order to assure a better bal-

The banquet Saturday came as a 
climax tp the end of the first half ot 
the season, which the Co-Operative 
Creamery men won after a spirited 
race. The start of the season gener- 
ally found the team at the bottom of 
the" heap, but by close appplication and 
efficient leadership they crawled stead- 
ily to the top — and copped the flag.

Thirty Scandinavian missionaries 
reached America in the 14th century, 
130 sears before the date of Colum- 
bus' [officially recognized discovery, 
and were presumably massacred by 
Minnesota Indians, according to Pro 
fessor H. R. Holand, a graduate of 
Wisconsin; university, who spoke here 
last Friday evening at the school au- 
ditorium on the "Runestone." 

This stone, Professor Holand said, 
was found about 24 years ago near 
Kensington, Minn. It bore an inscrip- 
tion iji Runic "and this has been trans- 
lated] by Mr. Holand. It shows, he 
says, [that in 1362 > the missionary band 
pushed into the interior of America as 
far as Kensington and where this 
stonelwas left by them telling of the 
massacre of 10 of their number by the 
Indians. After leaving Kensington, 
the other members of the party were 
apparently also killed by the Indians. 
Mr. Holand exhibited a number of 
weapons found during recent years in

,.3>33 the type used during the 14th century 
and which he said had been carried by 
this eftily missionary party. They in-

Mr. Haugan was a resident of Fer- 
gus Falls at the time and had a large 
following throughout the northwest 
owing to his extreme views upon the 
subject of temperance. He is a force- 
ful and eloquent speaker and has en- 
gaged in verbal combat with many of 
the prominent- men of Minnesota who 
occupied the stage of action in those 
turbulent days. He is now a resident 
of Redfield,' South Dakota, and is oc- 
cupied in writing songs and Norwe- 
gian literature for a publication which 
is printed in Cnicago.. 

His lecture in Thief River Falls will 
cover the subject of traditions and 
history of .the Norwegian people, and 
his intimate knowledge of and associ- 
ation with theleaders of the past gen- 
eration . should well qualify him to 
speak interestingly on such things.

, Thief River Falls :and vicinity have 
I much at stake in the highway bond 
■ proposals which 'ffill mean more good 
.roads for the present, cut waste Of 
money for highway upkeep and lower 
; highway transportation and travel 
costs, all without a cent of increase" in 
1 taxes, according Itb Charles _ M. Bab- 
cock, state highway commissioner. -: | 
' The bond plan! it is conceded, will 
! bring in the next two years highway 
| improvements, many of which other-' 
1 wise must wait five and 10 years and 
; even longer. Its' supporters now are 
; predicting favorable action by theLeg- 
| islature and further that, after results 
"are apparent on| trunk highways all 
i over the state injthe fall qf 1924, the 
I legislator who 'has voted against the' 
i proposals will have all the excuses tJo 
make. I 

i Commissioner Babcock makes plain 
; that the bond plan merely opens a fair- 
'; er and better way to use the automo- 
I bile taxes already coming in and that 
| it is not a matterj of taxes. j 

. "Motor vehicle taxes being collected 
now will have to be paid each year and 
used on the state) trunk highways un- 
der the Minnesota constitution, which 
even the legislature cannot change or 
modify," he said. I "Although they are 
slightly less .than under the old peij- 
sonal property tax law, the highway 
department is not asking or planning 
:for any increase in the agreed tax of 
. ■ $18 on the average automobile. It has 
,'been carefully figured out that thp 
;money at the rate it is now coming in 
i will pay the principal and interest on 
1 all bonds and leave sufficient each year 
i to take care of other demands. 

"The bond prpposal is to put to the 
: best and fairest use a given amount of 
i money— the funds . which will com'! 
j from automobile taxes during the next 
j 20 years." continued the commission- 

■ er ' 

I "Under the present plan, as has been 
'■ explained, the car owners of today 
are paying for past, present and fu- 
! ture road improvements and not get-- 
1 ting their fair returns for their- tax 
! dollars. More than $2,500,000 of the 
! 1922 auto tax funds were used for perl 
' manent work— grading and so forth— i- 
: "which will serve :for many years t-j- 
come. If a like i amount is used, in 
* each succeeding year,' mo 1923 ; tax^ 
payer will profit by the use of $5,000J 
:000 and the 1932 taxpayer by $25.? 
' 000,000 of these permanent highway 
', betterments, although the latter pay 
^ no higher automobile taxes than the 
: owner of last year. 

"The proposed bond plan will leve' 

; the returns. Anticinatfnsr the taxes t.-: 

'ibe paid each year,' it will enable thr 

: : state to spread the entire . costs witl> 

; interest on bonds over the term, to ap L 

; portion to each year its fair share of 

i the wjiole expense and give the taxf 

i payers of the present and the near fuj- 

1 ture more inst treatment. The. only 

r possible extra charge is that of in+erj- 

i est. which can be justified. It will, be 

1 paid from the general aggregate and 

\ that is only fair. ! Every investment 

1 must earn its interest and the use of 

the projected highwav improvements 

. will earn that many times" over." : j 

Members of tlie Legislature are said 

to be putting the highway bonds in a 

class by themselves because the nlan 

.does not call for any annual tax levy^ 

■ especially to meet the interest from 

year to year. This difference brings 

: out more strongly that the sinking 

! fund as submitted by the highway 

commissioner provides for interest 

payment's as they fall due and retire 

ment of the bonds; as they .maturie. 

Following explanations by Mr. Bab 
cock, the bond proposals are, receiving 
endorsements from many sources', 
state organizations, county .boards of 
commissioners, commercial clubs;, and 
- other civic bodies.: Good roads advoj- 
;.cates in many localities are beginning 
active work to secure support for the 
plan and it is steadily gaining strength

as to call for the undivided time of 
those placed in charge, and to place it 
in the hands j of any of the present 
state officials 'is not to be thought of. 
as that would mean procrastination 
and vexatious idjelays in administration 
which would tend to throw the whole 
law into disfavor — a' condition very 
much to the' 'liking of the big loan 
companies. ; ;~ 

The rural credits bill is sufficiently 
important to call for the undivided at- 
tention of the law-makers — in fact it 
is the one matter of great importance 
before them— and unless they get busy 
pretty soon and show signs of being 
alive to the situation, they are liable 
to hear from jhome, in a voice which 
will bear the tone of command. :

Most of 


Only a few! Sundays back, a Red- 
wood Falls pastor gave a most won- 
.derful talk on the subject of Death. 
His talk took: from this dread all of 
its dreadfulness, all of the fear and 
horror and sadness, and left only the 
■ beautiful mystery, the promise, the 
surety and the sorrow which is less a 
sorrow than a sweet remembrance. 
The other dayi in reading the column 
of The Periscope Man. of the Duluth 
Herald, we came across a simple bit 
of philosophy by "Uncle Gus," the sim- 
ple, homely words and the simple, bon- 
iest thought being a layman's clincher 
to a part of the pastor's message. At 
the risk . of running up against the 
copyright laws; we-are reprinting Un- 
cle Gus' few words on the subject: 

"The' was! a drummer in here a 
while aero," !snid Uncle Gus, as he 
loaned forward to light a broom 
straw on the 1 red hellv of the stove, 
"tellin' me about a friend o' his that 
had killed hisself. We got to-talkin' 
about dyin' an' it kind o' tid'led me 
the way we couldn't agree, him bein' 
young an' snry an' me old an' most 
wo' out. j 

"Nature' fixes things about ; right. 
When a feller is in his prime, she 
makes him ihate death, so's he'll 
keep out o' danger an' take care of 
his health. , if she didn't do it. like 
■ as not lots o' young folks would git 
kind o' . discouraged an' kill them- 

"It was that-a-way when I was 
.a young feller. Didn't even like to 
talk 'bout dyin'. ~ It gives me" the 
creeps. Rwanted to keep on livin' 
f o'ever. 1 

"But now I'm gettin' old; death 
don't scare, me none. Nature has 
' done fixed my mind so's I'll be 'bout 
ready. I contemplate passin' out as 
a kind o' easy. an' placid way o' go- 
in' to rest. I reckon as our bodies 
gits weaker, \ the will to live gits 
weaker. j "

knowed it. She don't require noth- 
in' of 'em thaf'sne don't give 'em 
the strength to do." — Redwood Falls

More Men Than Women 


Medical reports show men are more 
subject to appendicitis although many 
sudden cases occur among women. It 
can be guarded against by prevent- 
ing intestinal infection. The intestinal 
antiseptic, Adler-i-ka, acts on BOTH 
upper and lower bowel, removing all 
foul, decaying matter which - might 
cause infection. It brings out matter 
you never" thought was in your sys- 
tem and which mayjiave been poison-

President Presents 
to Prove Errors in 
Recem; Speeches of New 
Senator From Iowa. 

Oiicefgo, Jan. 14— Samuel M. Felton, 
president of the Chicago Great West- 
em Kailwaly, and chairman ;of the 
Western Railway Presidents' Commit- 
tee on Public Relations, todayi sent an 
open letter] to United States ; Senator 
Smith W. Brookhart of Iowa, denounc- 
ing "" as "reckless misrepresentation" 
many assertions regarding railway 
matters made by Senator Brookhart 
ina recentlspeech in the Senate. Mr. 
'Felton characterized as "base and un- 
supported calumnies" charges made 
by Senator|Brookhart that railway of- 
ficeis did hot loyally serve the gov- 
ernment during the war. He declared 
that the policy of regulation of. rail- 
ways advocated by Mr. Brookhart 
would result in unconstitutional confis- 
cation of a' large part of the value of 
the railways, and referring to Mr., 
Brookhart's advocacy of government 
ownership and endorsement by the So- 
'cialists of Iowa for senator indicated 
that probably Mr. Brookhart advocat- 
ed this policy "because vou believe 
that confiscation of a large part of 
•the value of the railways would be the 
best way to begin introducing a so; 
cialistic regime in the United States." 

Mr. Felton's letter to .; Senator 
Brookhart in full is as follows: 

"Sir: 1 1 have read carefully, your 
first speech as a member of the 
United States Senate which was made 
on December 18. Your .elevation to 
this high loffice apparently has hot 
given you any more sense of respon- 
sibility for what you, say than you 


ties, as 

ties w< re. at the, lowest point ever 

in .1920 because as a result of 

icawra *i..«t.*.v wbt.uu.jt. uo u * M u»* w* 

govern nent operation the net return 
actual! • earned in the three years 
ending with 1920 was only 11.7 per 
cent, ai : compared with 6,2 per cent in 
the t hi se years before. " ' '.'-.[. 
"Do you seriously claim that the 
govern nent' should so manage the 
railwa; s as to cause an enormous dej- 
preciat on in the value of theirisecurri- 
it, in fact, did, and should then 
[valuation of them upon this 
ited value? As a lawyer you 

iat such action by the govern;- 

ment v ould involve wholesale and unj- 
constit it-ional confiscation of propertyi 
Why d i| you, as a Senator, advocate a 
policy which, as a lawyer, you know 
the government could not constitution 
ally adbjpt? 

"If you claim the market value o:' 
railwajij | securities in 1920 was a.faii 
basis ojfj valuation, you must also ad 
mit it would havejbeen'a fair basis ir 
1923 ujHen the LaFollette valuation 
law was passed. Clifford Thome, a 
citizen Tof youf own state, who is well 
known las a bitter critic of the rail 


pays, in 1913 estimated the total . x 

of I railway securities, based upon •~ ar Sfi 

ie market prices paid in October^ < President wiison saia: -ine iui 
that yeK, at $13,969,200,000. The^U^P^tic ;co-opc^on of th , e 
ditionaTTcash investment which has ° ua - regional; directors, *>*»-> 
been made in the railways since then 
is about ?4,500,000,000. This added to 
Mr. Thjorne's estimate in 1913, would 
make IHe present valuation of the 
railway $18,500,000,000. | 

"Every pertinent fact bearing upon 
the question shows that your assertion 
that the railways have been overhaul-' 
ed to tile extent of Jev'en billion dolr 
lars isjwithout any foundation. Why, 
then, do you make such a statement? 
Your past advocacy of government 
ownership," your participation in -public 
gather|ngs of socialists who areseekf- 

ed as a witnei s before the Senate Com? 
mittee' on Interstate Commerce .and 
estimated that under government hianj. 
agement railway operating expenses! 
could be reduced over $400,000, )00 a; 
year. ^Government operation" wa s iniH 
mediately afterwards adopted, a id in 
the Brett yearjit was ineifect opei ating 
expenses increased over one 1 illion; 
dollars! Perhaps you thought some 
explanation was due from you as to 
why your estimate of railway exj enses; 
under government operation proi ed-to 
be $1,600,000,000 too small the first 
year. ! This. may be the true isaspn; 
why in your recent speech in the! 
Senate; in referring to the resuts of; 
government operation, you said: *I do 
not question; the integrity of tiie Di-j 
rector-General of Railroads.. H s was, 
both able and loyal to his' countr r, but; 
down below j him, perhaps belo v his: 
possible touch, were managing o ficers. 
who were niether loyal to him l lor to; 
the government of the United £ tates.j 
They wanted to discredit govenmentj 
operation so | that the railroads ivould; 
be turned back. They were traitors; 
.as truly as was Benedict Arnok .'; : j 

"I was notjin active railroad s sryicej 
during! the war, but was servi ig as 
Director-General of Military Rail-, 
roads, j I do know something, ho\ 'ever.J 
of how railway officers served theirj 
country at that time, and I deniunce; 
the charges you make against them' 
as base and unsupported calumi ies. j

Railroads in; 1918, and Walke ■ D.j

as Director-General, he issued a £tate-,

dorsecUby the Socialists of Iowa for 

United! States Senator, may afford the 

answeq. Perhaps you believe that con- 

of a large part of the .value 

■airways would be the best way 

"An illustration of the way in which i to begin introducing a socialistic re-

winter' varieties -are suffering on ac- 
count of inability to move owing to 
lack of equipment, and it may be pos- 
sible 'that a very small percentage will 
not move, but this is hardly possible.' 
"As the jtelegram shows, the 'ship- 
ment of apples has been interfered 
with bv shortage of transportation, 
not by -freight rates. It is unfortu- 
nately true that there has been a 
shortage of transportation for some 
months, and that the farmers and 
business interests of the country have 
suffered heavy losses because of it. 
This shortage of transportation is due 
mainly to the policy of restrictive re- 
gulation which has been followed for 
years, and nothing could be better 
adapted tq protract and increase it 
than the adoption of the policy of con- 
fiscating a large part of the jvalue of 
the railroads which you advocate. 

"As has been your custom in speech- 
es you have delivered in Iqwa.tyou 
made numerous statements upon the 
subject of I railroad valuation which 
were grossly incorrect and misleading. 
You said: ['-The valuation of nineteen 
billion dollars, in round numbers, as 
the basis of rates is uniust.j It was 
made under the rules set forth in this 
law (Transportation Act..)' After 
having alluded to an estimate that 
the market, value of all railroad se- 
curities was only twelve billion dol- 
~lars, you -added: 'This means all the 
stocks and all the bonds representing 
the entire I value of all the railroads in 
all the United States could be bought 
on the market for seven billion dollars 
less thanjthe valuation fixed by this 

"The Transportation Act said, with 
reference to valuation, that the Inter- 
state Commerce Commission should 
determine! the aggregate value of the 
railways, and that in doing so it 'may 
utilize the results of its investigation 
. under Section 19-A of this act insofar 
as it deemed by it advisable.' What 
is 'Section 19-A-?' It is that part of 
the Interstate Commerce Act passed 
in 1913 requiring the Commission to 
make a valuation of the railways, and 
the author of which was Senator R. 
M. LaFollette of Wisconsin; and Com- 
missionerjH. C. Hall of the Interstate 
Commerce Commission on January 5, 
. 1922,-presented to the Senate' Commit- 
tee on Interstate -Commerce j a memo- 
randum showing the valuation was 
made .under the rules and based on 
the data prescribed by the LaFoltette 
' law of 1913, and not under what you 
call the ?ules of the Transportation 

"You -said in your speech: 'This is 
the first time that watered Ivaluation 
■ has ever been legalized.' Commission- 
er Hall's memorandum showed that 
the Comri ission gave no consideration 
whatever to bonds and stocks and that 
therefore not a dollar of what you call 
'watered valuation- "was included.

Fairmont Sentinel: Claude Acker- 
man, a painter, 60 years old, who lives 
at Lakefield, is back from a three 
months' 'trip to Germany, where he 
went to claim an inheritance.' Mrl Ac- 
kerman stopped in Fairmont Sunday ,on hi return trip. He was given 
a bed at the : city hall and Monday 
morning the 'chief of. police buoght^ 
him a ticket to Lakefield. His; Ger- 
man inheritance left him stranded/ 
Had the German marl; held anything 
like its pre-war value, Mr. Ackerman 
would now be! comfortably rich. As it 
is he is much poorer than, he would 
. have been had he never claimed the 
"fortune" his! -relative in Alsace left 
him. 'Ackerman received several jrreat 
bales of- marks in settlement of his 
legacy. On exchanging them for real 
money he received $110. With this he 
undertook to ; make his way back to 
America. He got a far as' Maclelia. 
Herei the last cent of his resources was 
spent. Ke walked to Truman \ and 
caught a ride from that village to 
Fairmont. Thanks to the generosity 
of Chief Serle he ate and slept while 
in Fairmont and .from here traveled 
on the velvet. Ackerman is ready to 
shoot the next relative in Germany 
who dies and; leaves him a "fortune."

Credits Law Will Fail 
,nless People of the Coun- 
try Make Demands Known

The Tribune has been talking rural 
credits for two years in the hope of 
getting a; response which could be 


plainly heard in the halls of the legis- \ ar ^, & 
lture when the time for action ar- 


The rural credits bill now pending 
in the legislature is all right with a 
few minor amendments, but] at every 
hearing so far conducted ten enemies 
of the bill have appeared where one 
real friend was present. j 

The Tribune wants to make it plain 
that the bill is of greater importance 
to northern Minnesota than to any 
other section, for the simple reason 
that under its provisions | northern 
Minnesota will be enabled to secure 
farm loans on the same jfavorable 
basis now; extended to the better set- 
tled sections, and that is why it is up 
to the people of this section to be alert 
and on guard EIGHT NOW: 

The opponents of the measure are 
those loan agents who regard northern 
Minnesota as the abiding ! place ■ of 
suckers who will continue !to pay a 
high interest rate on short time loans. 
' and they! do not want a law passed 
which will place this territory on 
terms of 'equality with other sections.

State Supreme Cbi|irt E»ecides Against 
i Pennington County in 1 Red Lake Project 

Bui ding- Breaks Through 

Ice and Freezes ,Fast uu 

Chilly Waters, 

Now Necessary to Tear 
Qown Structure and : 
Moye Piecemeal. 

According to information reaching T le Tribune late this afternoc n, 
the State Supreme Court on Friday a: firmed the decision of Jud re 
Andrew Grirideland iii levying an! assessi lent of $10,000 on Penningtt n, 
Beltrami, Red Lake/ Clearwater and ;Marshall counties to create a 
fund for further preliminary work on th s Red Lake project, the mon ;y 
to be expended as the Red Lake Drai vage and Conservancy Board 
sees fit. : I . . 

The 1 affirmation of the supreme cour ; will mean that the Penning- 
ton board of county commissioners will be compelled to devise means 
by which this county's portion of the a nount (estimated to be some- ; 
where in the neighborhood of $2^000) ca 1 be raised. This will be ren- 
dered difficult in the face of the; fact th; it the budget for the year hi 
been planned and the board made no provision for the payment of its 
proportionate share under the Grindela id decision. The amount now 
to go to the Conservancy board will be used in making further inquiry 
into the possibilities! of the Red Lake' jroject, which is in addition to 
$5,000 formerly expended by, the board. 

The Pennington county boara had appealed to the supreme court 
to set aside the decision of- Judge Grindeland, but it now appears he 
money jwill have to be provided, ; As- f arias is known, none of the 'other 
counties mentioned appealed; from the c ecision. 

The 1 recent decision is viewed in th< light of a temporary victory 

for proponents of the Red Lake River project, although it is known 

that the actual starting of operations in the big drainage job, which 

involves the expenditure of approximatily. $670,000,- will be fought to 

"the bitter end by itsiotfponents. !

on the marvelous adventures and es-

than this, according to Manager; Bru-

ground was covered with snow and' the 
weather was so balmy during the first 
part of Tuesday, Jan. 7th, as to i en- 
courage farmers to make trips to town 
or to the woods for fuel. About two, 
o'clock a great many were wending 
their "way homeward with their sleds 
and teams of horses or oxen. : At that 
hour there was no indication of a com- 
ing storm. The thermometer was 
about at the freezing point, the wind, 
which had been blowing gently from 
the southwest, suddenly went down 
and a perfect! calm settled over; the" 
■vast expanse of the snow clad prairie. 
Light, fleecy clouds floated lazily in 
the heavens and occasionally a flurry 
of feathery snowflakes came sifting 
down through ' the tranquil atmos- 
phere Such was the stillness for a 
few moments that human voices,; the 
barking of dogs or the lowing of ;cat- 
tle could be heard for miles. ' 
Tremendous Polar Wave. i 

"Suddenly a muttering and rumb- 
ling as of distant thunder was heard 
in the direction of the far-away north- 
west. At first these sounds were more 
suggestive than real, but in a moment 
they began to: increase, and swell in 
volume until the fierce roar of j the 
coming hurricane struck the earj of 
the anxious and affrighted listener. 
Simultaneously, there appeared upon 
the northwestern horizon a white cloud 
like a snowbank, which mounted; up- 
ward, increased in volume and \ ap- 
proached with astonishing rapidity. 
Within a few moments after these jpre- | 
monitory signs the storm broke in all I 
its fury. The temperature fell stead- i 
ily and it became intensely cold. Great ' 
clouds of snow, resembling powdered j 
and hard frozen ice, were driven by

The I Tribune 




Published Every Wednesday at 
Thie f River Falls, Minn, j 

Entered r asj second class matter at 
the post office at Thief River Falls, 
Minn., und er the" Act of March 1 3, 1879. 

Official Newspaper of City of Thief 
1 Elver Ealls and "Pennington County. 



When The Tribune reaches the stage 
where it can be dictated to by moon- 
shiners or any other brand of law- 
breakers, it will print "dishrag" in a 
conspicuous place at the head of its 

pHlf.nwal nnlnrnni' 

editorial columns. 

A sugar factory in Thief River Falls 
is no idle dream, but it never can be 
obtained or maintained by the pessi- 
mists in city or country. 

We" wish to make it plain-fonce and 
for all — that The Tribune is commit- 
ted to the proposition of ridding Thief 
River Falls of] moonshine, and we do 
not care to quibble about minor tech- 
nicalities. If those who feel aggrieved 
over articles appearing in this news 
paper will tell] their troubles to the 
policeman much needless waste' of 
time will be avoided. 


The Tribune |has had a great deal 
to say during the past three months 

with reference 

to rural credits— so 

much in" fact ttat we have about run 

out of argument

But one more thing

It cannot be denied that the farmer

j ties which he stands in need of, 
j among them the commodity of ici-edit, 
and the rural credit bill . now ^pending 
in the' legislature presents a j most 
■favorable opportunity to right -that 
injustice to a certain extent. The law 
may not do all that is promised for 
it, but at least it is a start in the right 
■ direction. 

The farmers cannot pay ten per

Therefore The Tribune would sug- 
gest that leaders in the legislature be 
appealed to for quick action upon this 
measure. We would like to see a law 
passed enabling the board to loan up 
to- 70 per cent of the appraised value 
of farm land and 40 per cent upon the

"Beit . Walkers Make Best Citizens," 
Says Mayor of New York. ; 

K- I - ' ! ; 

today there are no less than $008 
hiking clubs In Greater New York, 
with a total membership of more than 
a quarter of a! million men and worn-' 
en, who are keeping themselves In! the 
pink of condition and experiencing; the 
real Joy of living by getting: regularly 
out Into the open country with' no oth- 
er means of locomotion than their God- 
given legs. . '| I 

The city of New York has taken offi- 
cial notice of the movement ', On three 
occasions recently Mayor Hylan has 
congratulated the boys an&girls of. Hie 
public Schools jupon their enthusiasm 
In taking up the new sport of biking. 
In his dedication of the great-new pub- 
lic playground in the Bronx the other 
day Mayor Hylan extolled th'eiathletic 
tendencies of the boys and girls, and 
Impressed upon' them that there was 
no better or nwre profitable 'way. In 
which they could pass their vacations 
and utilize their holidays than by the 
excursions Into field and forest of their 
walking cliibs.; He gave the same 
message to the; Amateur Athletic tJn- 
lon of Brooklyn a few days later, anil 
when a club of East Side boysand girls 

'visited him at. city hall preparatory to 
a hike to the jtomb of Kuoseveit': at 
Oyster Bay "he [assured them ; that tho 
best walkers among them would, make 
the best citizens. ■! ■; 

i Walk |and Be Weii; ; 

No less enthusiastic a champion; of 
the walking game is Dr. Royal ; S.' 
G'opejund, cltyj health- commissioner., 
"The] benefit to health and the safe-: 
guard- to morals to be found in long 
walks," said Dr. Copeland In an In- 
terview, "are too apparent ;to speak 
'of them. If one' takes long walks alone. 
It -is well, for jhe walks the road of 
health, but if he takes long iwalks' in 
.company it iB better for lie 'adds the 
tonic of companionship to his exercise. 
Walking is the lone form of exercise in 
which there is^ the minimum ■ risk of 
overdoing It. j In short, 1 j. consider 
walking the mbst beneficial of all exer- 
cises and it is never out of season." 
, "Never In niy life-time," said Ed- 
ward R. Wilbur, manager of a nation- 
ally known sporting good's store, "have 
I known such a -demand as now; for out- 
door garments j and shoes and stock- 
ings and appliances for the tourist's 
luncheon box. [Tire rapid spread and 
tremendous popularity of the walking- 
."club idea has |no parallel in lour; ex- 
perience.. I - ; 

"The hiker can make his requisite 
just what he feels like spending. Real- 
ly, there are only two or three articles 
indispensable to hiking — thick walking 
shoes that allow lots of room, thick 
woolen socks jand clothing -that. Jwlll- 
give freedom of limb. He should have 
a canvas or leather musette bag, such 
as the soldiers jused in France! ! 
The Cow! in the Knapsack j 
"To get the real benefit and Joyj out 
of hiking luncheon should be carried 
and prepared and eaten In the open. 
Bread and cheese, a few : slices of 
bacon, some coffee, a can of condensed 
milk, and a cake of chocolate jfur- 
nish high-powered fuel for I the lilker 
and are readily and happily assimk 
lated even by jthose who In | their jpre- 
hiking days were . afflicted; with; di- j 
gestlve apparatus so feeble as to balk ; 
at crackers anil milk. Fortunately for I 
the hiker, he can replenish his simple ! 
larder at any] cross-roads istore | and 
provide himself with the most nutrl-' 
tlous and appetizing food In a form 
that can be conveniently carried, j 

"No single development In the prob- 
lem of food transportation j f or i ■ the 
hunter, fisherman, hiker and all lovers 
of the out-of-doors can compare with 
the gift bestowed by the ; wan ; who 
first found the way to make con- 
densed milk.y thereby putting; a dairy 
in every "man's knapsack. Before long- 
there will be a national association of 
•hikers, and Gall Borden^ will be its pa- 
tron saint. Such an association could do 
jmuch to encourage the spread of the 
jmost beneficial and. universal of all 
ioutdora' pastimes, map out interesting

A Winter Day — Early one frosty

and saw the frozen river covered with 
sparkling snow. On either side: was a 
beautiful background of giant trees 
and sparkling underbrush. The' trees, 
with their crystal mantle, which Jack

In the beginning of thd school term 
. a Litle Citizens League was organized. 
The following officers were elected: 
President, Eleanor Swahson; secre- 
tary, Lora parson; treasurer, Luvern 
Mogen. Three committees were ap- 
pointed, one on programs.' one on 
games and one on cleanliness.' The 
committee on programs .give's; pro- 
grams which are selected, rehearsed 
and conducted by the committeeialone. 
So afr two programs have been given 
when parents and others were invited. 
Members of this committee are' El- 
eanor Swanson and Lora 'Larson; The 
committee on games is Anton Larson 
and Roy Mogen. The duty of this 
committee is to learn new games and 
teach them to the rest. Lufern Mogen 
and Ellen Larson comprise the com- 
mittee on cleanliness. Their duties are 
many and varied as for instance they 
see to it that there are no dirty harids 
and faces and that the school room! is 
kept tidy, etc. 

The poem studied and learned in 
December was "A Christmas Carol," 
by Lowell. It seemed like everyone 
enjoyed this beautiful poem. ;

'ere some shepherds near the 
ethlehem who. were watching 
their shefep thatl night when suddenly 
there appeared a star in the east. ; The 
shepherds knew that this must mean 
something so- they talked to. each other 
about the star. At last they became 
frightened and did not know what. to 
do. Than an angel appeared. in the 
heavens land bade them not to tie 
afraid because the. star told of; the 
birth of pie Christ child, who was to 
be their pew king. . 

Soon there appeared a host of an- 
gels whdsang, "Glory' Be to God in 
the Hignest and on Earth Peace and 
Good Will to Men." Then the shep- 
herds wi nt to Bethlehem and found 
the phild They gave him a lamb for

It seei ned quite a task to settle 
down to work again after a vacation, 
but afte : the first week everyone 
seems to have fallen back into the old 
path an< all are even more enthusi- 
astic ove r their work than before. 

To ma ce the. "Eskimo' 'study of the 
primary grade more interesting, we 
have lea med an Eskimo song aiul 
have the blackboard bordered with a 
drawing of snow huts, ice bergs and 
the like. It maeks it seem quite wint- 
ry, but is the weather is not severe 
we rathe r enjoy it. 

The L ttle Citizens League held a 
meeting Ian. 13. A new chairman oh 
entertain ments was chosen, the former 
one havi lg been recalled. It was de- 
cided thi.t we have a candy pull to 
reunite J gain. It was held Saturday 
evening it the school house and was 
attended I by a large majority of the 
members The evening was spent in 
playing tames, cooking and pulling 
candy, a id lastly a light lunch was 
served aid finished with eating the 
taffy. Everyone enjoyed ten evening 
greatly ind showed that they were 
not only game in studies, but in re? 
creation is well. 

The at«hdance this month has im- 
proved greatly over that of previous 
months. I think, we owe it to the 
weather :onditions as most of the pu- 
pils have long distances to school and 
are unable to attend in bad weather; 

We ar| really hoping that this sec- 
tion will! claim a winner to compete 
in the spelling contest at Crookston
